    The silver Labrador is here to stay at the Silver Basket, making the perfect Christmas gift!  He comes in all sizes, sometimes sitting, sometimes standing on the alert.  Whichever size you choose he makes the perfect Christmas gift for all dog lovers.silver Labrador dog Each Labrador dog is made in England from the finest Sterling Silver and each one is hallmarked.  The largest, most gorgeous silver Labrador ornament stands 20cm in height.  He is waiting in eager anticipation for a walk!  The detail on this Labrador ornament is quite lovely; great attention has been paid to the expression in his eyes and to the texture of his coat.






    I have a sitting silver Labrador waiting to join your home.  He is available in three sizes; 21cm in height, 10.8cm and finally a smaller size at 6.3cm in height.  This particular range of silver Labrador has more of a high lustre in appearance. silver Labrador ornament 64 He sits on a sterling silver base and makes a fabulous addition to a bookshelf, window sill or mantle piece.

  • Peter Rabbit Christening Gifts

    Peter Rabbit Christening Gifts are ever popular silver presents - treasured for a lifetime

    Peter Rabbit is a well loved character, treasured by adults and children alike.  Although, as a child, I devoured all of the Beatrix Potter books, Peter Rabbit has remained a firm favourite – a naughty, wilful, but equally loveable character.  My sister, brother and I could recite the book by heart and I do not think we would be unique in this matter.

    I could not allow my shop to be complete without Peter Rabbit.  I have two items to offer you; a Peter Rabbit teething ring and a Peter Rabbit rattle.  They both have a vintage appeal for those who veer toward a traditional christening or baptism silver gift.

    The Peter Rabbit teething ring has a more modern acrylic ring for safety reasons and the silver Peter Rabbit rattle has a small ring attached allowing it to be fastened to a pram or decorated with a coloured ribbon of your choice.

He measures 6cm in length (excluding ring) and the ring measures 5cm in diameter.  The rattle is 13.4cm in length.

    Both the rattle and teether meet EU safety standards.

    For an older child’s Christening or indeed, Confirmation, there is a very appealing Peter Rabbit bookmark, available in silver plate and sterling silver.

    He is not a Peter Rabbit but is just as gorgeous. With articulated parts he seems to bob around on the top of a book looking very much alive.








    These two little rabbits hold the same appeal as the Flopsy Bunnies.

  • Care of silver household items

    Care of silver household items can be easy with an expert tip 

    Dusting - First, use a soft-bristled brush or clean cotton cloth to dust the piece. While this may seem unnecessary, it's important since dust can easily turn into an abrasive and scratch the finish if not removed before applying cleaning solutions.

    Removing Candle Wax - Candle wax can be removed from a silver holder by simply running hot water over the area containing the wax. The softened wax should be easy to pry out with a finger. Never risk scratching the piece by using a knife or other sharp object. Continue reading
