Superb Quality Cut Glass Biscuit Barrel with STERLING. Very rarely do we find them with hallmarked silver - the vast majority are have silver plate mounts. Very heavy cut glass in a geometric "X's" & "O's" pattern. Solid Silver rim, handle and lid all bear hallmarks for Birmingham 1915. Traditionally Biscuit Barrels would be be the elegant receptacle for the biscuits (similar to American crackers but sweeter) served at tea time. As the tea services became more elaborate and ritualized, more elegant the Biscuit Barrels were needed. We currently have a collection of over 100 Biscuit Barrels - ranging from the traditional cut glass versions, to ones with elaborate etched designs, rare colours and unique designs incorporated in wooden barrels. We release only 10 to 15 or so at a time. Please contact us in you are looking for something in particular. Biscuit Barrels make great wedding presents, elegant display pieces for marble collections of marbles, match books and even have been known to store Christmas ornaments!
