Created after a drawing by Garneray around 1800, it is decorated with winged chimeras, which are a very representative ornament of the decorative arts for the Empire time.

These chimeras are generally represented with a lion’s head, a goat’s body and a snake’s tail.

This basket, by requiring more than 50 hours of work, symbolizes the remarkable know-how of our goldsmiths.
