19TH CENTURY VICTORIAN SUPERB SILVER PLATE BISCUIT BARREL BY FAMED MAKERS HUKIN AND HEATH!

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Serpentine Antiques

Description:
19th century Victorian silver plate biscuit barrel or jar in the aesthetic form by famous luxury goods makers Hukin and Heath, the company where Christopher Dresser was the artistic advisor.
Jonathan Wilson Hukin and John Thomas Heath were known under Dresser's direction for providing goods for the Victorian family table, having stylised shapes and distinctive designs, which appealed to the fashion conscious public. Many were inspired by Japanese designs.
With an all over dimpled bark effect to surface, shaped top and bottom edges and lid with pomegranate finial, this is a lovely and heavy example, which may possibly have been designed by Dresser. It stands on a pedestal foot.
The bottom of piece bears Hukin and Heath marks as well as pattern number 5769, and other markings.
Size-7 inches tall. Top diameter 4.5 inches. Bottom diameter 6.5 inches.
An unusual, beautifully crafted and very functional piece in very good condition.

About the Date of Manufacture
This antique was produced in the Victorian period (1837 - 1901). The Victorian era of British history was the period of Queen Victoria's reign from 20 June 1837 until her death, on 22 January 1901. It was a long period of peace, prosperity and national self-confidence for Great Britain. Some scholars date the beginning of the period in terms of sensibilities and political concerns to the passage of the Reform Act 1832.
