Canton Clobbered Fruit Basket and Stand

Rare clobbered Canton reticulated bowl and stand with shell handles.  The clobbering is the enameling (color that was applied over the underglaze blue decoration) possibly thinking it enhanced the piece.  The basket is original to the stand and in wonderful condition.  Moreover, the shell handles are perfect with no restoration.
