Filigree Basket with Handle. A superb example of Old World Russian filigree work made by hand and not a machine. This delicate and labor-intensive piece is an excellent example of design and craftsmanship reminiscent of "bobbin-lace" (a textile made by braiding and twisting lengths of thread, which are wound on bobbins). The copper piece is dipped in practically pure (99.9%) silver. Hand crafted in Kazakovo, near Nihzny Novgorod (formerly the city of Gorky). 8 sets of flowers each with 7 leafs with same motif repeated inside the basket. In the center is a gorgeous spray of wing/leaf forms with a single tiny grain (seed) in the very center. The handle and the base also exhibit fine craftsmanship.  A braided copper wire forms the handle.  In about fine condition bright silver condition with faint traces of silver sulfide in a few spots upon close inspection. A nice gift for the Russian filigree connoisseur or collector. 6" diameter. 4" in height.
