This is a silver plated Bride's basket with swing handle made by Meriden Brittania Company of Meriden, Connecticut (1852-1898). This basket is in shape number 1806, this basket having been made circa 1880 when bride's baskets were most popular for bride's to use for handing out pieces of cake to their guests at their own wedding. This is silver plated meaning that it is a base alloy of nickel and zinc then dipped in a very thin wash of liquid silver. By comparison, sterling silver is 92.5% silver throughout. This basket has a value of $25.00 to $35.00 retail value today.
