Last of the thrift store finds is this glass basket with a sterling silver handle from England.

My wife collects old glass and it really is unusual to find one that uses a silver handle as part of the finished object. The use of silver seems very natural and I am surprise that it is not more common.

This is not actually English - nor even British. The six-sided lion shows that it is Dutch and .833 standard silver. The date letter (on the right in the picture) is J for 1893.

Thanks for the correction. I would have been looking for a date letter forever.
