Pierced silver cake basket with stamp of William Scott, Dundee, c. 1780

There has been debate as to whether this basket was made by Scott or simply bought in and retailed by him. However, as the area where the marks are stamped has been deliberately left un-pierced to accommodate them, this would seem conclusive evidence that it was made and marked in Scott’s own workshop.
