This lovely china Biscuit Barrel is taller and narrower than most. It is also unusual in that it features a landscape pattern that wraps around the entire barrel. The greying flo blue coloration reminds me of the earliest of the annual Christmas & Mother's Day plates from Denmark. (We have the entire set of Christmas plates if any one is interested.) The silver plate rim and beaded handle are complimented by a lovely engraved lid and finial. Traditional silver plate handle and finial. Beautifully engraved silver plate lid. Clear WEDGWOOD impression on bottom of barrel. 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!
