This unusual aqua blue glass Biscuit Barrel is most noteworthy for its rare colour. Very few Biscuit Barrels were made of colored glass to begin with and this light aqua color is exceedingly rare. Lovely fern design in the glass is allowed to stand out with the simple silver plate rim, lid and handle. Very collectible! 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!
