Vintage silver plated flower basket, a small bride's basket or vase, marked 1881 Rogers. This isn't quite as old as 1880s, but it does have a lovely Victorian style!
It measures 8 1/2" tall to the top of the handle - not huge, or terribly heavy. You could probably use this as a cake topper for a wedding cake. It has a rim which could hold a small flower frog if you'd rather use it for flowers. It looks good even empty, with its tall slender trophy shape.
