A rare Worcester basket, cover and stand

A rare Worcester oval 'chestnut' basket, cover and stand, the twig loop handles and know with applied flower and leaf terminals, the stand very unusually painted in coloured enamels with exotic birds and insects, the flower head moulded and pierced borders picked out in puce and gilt, 10 1/2" wide overall, circa 1772, no marks

It is very unusual to find exotic bird rather than flower painting on Worcester baskets of this form
