An exceptionally Rare PAIR of dark blue jasperware Biscuit Barrels by Adams that feature a very classical column and swag pattern. The quality is simply outstanding - from the classical urn shape to the beautiful pedestal bases. This is the only pair of Biscuit Barrels we have had in our 25 plus years of collecting (and probably 400 plus have passed through our hands in that time!). 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. 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!
