"Flower" (Цветочная) Basket. This Russian elegant filigree basket with an attached flexible handle was made by hand, not by a machine. It is an outstanding example of filigree design and craftsmanship as perfected during the days of Catherine the Great. The pattern is reminiscent of bobbin-lace with seed pearl enhancements. 99% pure silver over copper. Hand-crafted in the tiny town of Kazakovo, near Nihzny Novgorod (formerly the city of Gorky). 5¾" diameter. A beautiful compliment to our Russian Tea Glass Holders.
