    This amber glass basket turned up in a mixed box at auction.

    It measures 16cm x7cm and is 8cm tall

    I tried image search and only found one other example in a Mail Online article about a collector but with no further details.

    Can any glass experts help with an identification?

    I’ve asked, here’s the reply so far.

    My folks have a clear one of these, it’s always been in the unknown page, a lot of Sowerby items from this period can be found in catalogues, definitely from the North East, Edward Moore were known for rope style handles and I think it’s more likely from them as there’s not so much info available on Moore. Amber colour is from 1880’s.
