Vintage Silver Swing Basket with (Original) Glass Bowl c.1940 (14.5oz) (H)6in. x (W)4in. An incredible Piece that's the epitome of American craftsmanship & ingenuity, this beautiful Vintage Swing Basket will certainly garner the admiration of many. Shop records indicate the Basket is American in origin, and has an approximate date of production set at or near the year of (1940). The Swing Basket is composed of two Pieces; the Basket, and the (Original) Glass Bowl, which rests inside the Basket. The Basket is comprised of: thick, quality, ornate, embossed, Silverplate. The Silverplate Basket forms an exoskeleton that allows for the aforementioned (Original) Glass Bowl to rest inside. The Basket is supported by three-legs, and has a Swing-handle. It has an Avian & Floral theme that is bold in its expression, and ornate in detail. One could perhaps best equate the Baskets appearance to that of a Repousse pattern. As noted, the (clear) Glass Bowl is Original, and evokes clarity too. Although created during the latter years of the Art Deco, artistic period, the Piece is really a Revival, in the respect that it resembles Pieces commonly associated with the prior, Art Nouveau Era. There's some Mid-Century traits present too. Despite the Vintage Basket being over (80+) years of age, it has stood the test of time. The Glass Bowl shows no signs of fractures, or cracks. The Silver Basket is illuminated by the perfect amount of Patina. Some general wearing is the only true sign of its age; a testament to the quality of the Piece, and to the care it has since received. The Vintage Silver Swing Basket with (Original) Glass Bowl is stored in a: dry, secured, environment, and will be a highly coveted Piece for collection and display.
