Silver colour swing handle basket with glass liner

Postby Tarek El Kholy » Mon Jun 18, 2018 5:40 pm

Hello, I acquired this item and I can not be sure if it is solid silver or not. Each foot of the basket is stamped with unknown marks.
After some research I feel that they could be antique french hallmarks. Can anybody help identify the marks on the attched pictures?
Kind regards
Tarek

Hi,

They are British Design Registry marks.

The lack of a British silver hallmark implies that the frame is electroplated, not solid silver.
