Workshop of Paul de Lamerie (English (born Netherlands), 1688–1751)
Paul de Lamerie's workshop produced a number of basket designs between 1724 and 1751. Several of the decorative elements seen on this basket, including the mermaid handle and dolphin supports, were derived from sixteenth- and seventeenth-century examples. Its shape and design proved very popular, and were copied by other English silversmiths both before and after Lamerie's death.
