Royal the Duke of York, pair of bread baskets Benjamin Smith and Digby Scott, London 1804

I have sold one of these baskets three times, the other, once, and that is still in the Packer Collection.

The Duke of York’s silver gilt Auguste candelabra now stand either side of the other basket on the Ambassadorial Treaty of Vienna Londonderry Plateau, in another collection of the finest silver gilt that I have been forming for over 25 years.
