This extremely well done lace floral designed basket in oval format shows a well done and wide lipped basket holding flowers with an almost web effect of lines going to an outer border. The effect is one of charm and old. At some point, the frame has been refinished, today thee are minor scratches from normal wear, but this just adds to the overall impact of the piece. I would almost guess that this was purchased in England years ago, cleaned in the 1950s in the US, the velvet backing changed, and nothing done to it for the last 50 years. The visual appearance could not be better and the overall impact is one of Victorian theme.
