A nice reticulated basket made by KPM around 1800. It is not easy to find an early version of these in good condition these days.
This one is nicely hand painted with a decent quality floral design with four butterflies in the bottom inside, nice reticulated sides highlighted in gilding and some nice leaf shaped terminals to the handles. Really a very nice piece! The basket is in great condition with some very minimal wear to the gilding in superb shape for being 200 years old! And a small chip to one leaf of the terminals as shown but it is not obvious at all and took me a while to find. The piece is 3.75 inches tall (including the handles), 9.625 inches wide and 7.25 inches deep.
It is marked underneath with an early under glaze blue scepter mark as well as an incised double line which is a size reference and a line with a triangle - not sure what exactly that stands for. German Germany 18thC 19thC 18th 19th century. If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces like Vienna , Sevres and so on.
