About this item

A lovely 1920s era oak biscuit barrel (could be used as an ice bucket) with the original ceramic liner and EPNS silver plated mounts. The oak has some really lovely figuring and has a double row of bobbin turned carving.

The shield shaped cartouche is engraved "To Dolly from Jinnie & Cis Oct 20th 1923"

The condition is very good although the silver plate has some tarnishing and is worn through to the brass in some places including on lid, but overall this is a quality item in fine fettle commensurate with it's age. One of the most handsome and super quality of these biscuit barrels I have come across.

It would be a super addition to any collection, excellent display or practical piece, or authentic period prop.
