This is a beautiful, delicate silver plated wine basket made by French silversmith Christofle. It bears a hallmark and the Christofle name on the bottom of the basket. This basket holds a full 750 ml bottle of wine. It is 9 1/2" long, 3 3/4" wide; the basket is 3 1/2" high and measures 7" high with the handle. This piece has never been used and is therefore in fantastic condition. It is still in its original cloth bag and box with the original label, although the box has discoloured with age, has some writing on the lid and inner flap and the original inner packaging has disintegrated.
This would make a great Christmas present for a collector or wine enthusiast.
