Henry Birks and Sons have been renowned for over 130 years for their unique luxury designs that have become synonymous for high class and prestige. EPNS means "Electro Plated Nickel Silver". Nickel Silver (sometimes stainless steel) is the base metal onto which silver is plated. Despite its name, nickel silver contains no silver at all, but is an alloy of nickel, zinc & copper. A layer of pure silver is deposited electrolytically on the base metal to give a silver finish.

The ruffled EPNS basket is in very good condition with no dents or noticeable silverplate loss. On the reverse side of the basket is a circle of rubbing marks from where the basket would sit on a table surface.
