Mid-Century Italian Silver Wire Fruit or Bread Basket


This basket is silver-plated, meaning that its core material is likely a copper and zinc alloy that has been covered in a silver coat through a process called ‘electroplating’, a process where electrolytic cells of a metal onto an electrically conductive surface through electrolysis. The result of this process is a bright and shiny silver object that costs significantly less than their pure silver counterparts. This piece is an oblong oval shape, with a thick round base. The body of the basket is formed by an airy surround, spotlighting the contents of the bowl.
