A wonderful Victorian biscuit box or barrel, always highly sought-after in this Drum form, I have probably not had one for three or four years, that's how scarce and hard to come by they are.
The fittings are made from silver plate with the lid topped with a finial in the form of a pair or drum sticks against an open piece of sheet music, both lavishly gilded. The interior retains the original glazed cream colour ceramic liner. The swing handle has a belt and buckle detail incorporated into it.
The box is unmarked but undoubtedly by John Grinsell. Victorian in era, dating to around 1890. Excellent condition, measuring 5 3/4" in diameter; 5 3/4" to top of drum; 7 1/2" to top of drum sticks and 9 1/2" to top of handle when upright.
