William Hutton Silver Plated Basket


I have a pretty silver plated basket (I think it’s silver plated) and wondered if anyone could tell me what it’s worth? I can’t really get a clear picture of the mark so I’ll tell you what it says instead :slight_smile: thanks!

It’s definitely silver plated. BP = Britannia Plate = electroplated Britannia metal and A1 is an indicator of the plating quality. It has no intrinsic value - decorative and utility value only. I suggest you look for something vaguely similar in the completed auctions section of eBay.
