Vintage Cobalt Blue & Green Majolica Serving Handled Leaf Shape Basket w/ Brown Braided Handle and Grape Bunches
Majolica Handled Basket
This piece is super heavy and has gorgeous, intricate details of the braided rope handle and cobalt clusters of grapes. It is in great condition with exception to one tip of one leaf has a tiny little chip. I almost missed this except that I decided to wash it off to remove the dust that had built up on it. The tiny chip is on the right side at the front if you are looking at the basket. I showed this in photo 4. There are no markings on the bottom and it is also not glazed like the rest of the piece. I wish I had more to tell about this and if anyone would like to share please feel free to send a message.
Measures: Appx. 11 1/4" from widest point, side to side x 11 3/4" from top of leaf to bottom x 9 3/4" to top of handle.
