This exceptional antique Victorian glass biscuit barrel has a circular rounded form.

The glass box is fitted with a plain cylindrical hallmarked sterling silver mount to the rim.

This antique biscuit barrel retains the original push fit hallmarked circular cover embellished with engraved decoration replicating the details of the barrel's staves.

The cover is surmounted with an exceptional hallmarked sterling silver finial realistically modelled in the form of a wound rope bundle supporting a tag, accented with the elucidating word 'Biscuits'.

The impressive glass body is ornamented with six large and interlacing cut glass star designs, accented with a star cut motif to the underside.

Biscuit barrels such as this were commonly crafted in silver plate; solid silver examples are uncommon to the market.
