Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes - 191 g

Elegant basket with a removable handle, made in silver filigree likely in the small town of Campo Ligure (near Genoa, in Italy), in the early 20th century.

Filigree is a delicate kind of jewellery metalwork imitating the arabesque, made with tiny gold or silver threads, arranged in artistic motifs.

There are no hallmarks, but I guarantee that the piece is made of silver as it has been tested with a special acid.

Collector’s item.
