Very pretty Sheffield 1934 English hallmarked solid silver and cut glass swing handled biscuit box or barrel by famous makers James Dixon and Sons.
The hallmarks are clear and also include the special mark commemorating the silver jubilee of George V and Queen Mary.
It is unusual to find such items with solid silver mounts, as biscuit barrels are most often found in silver plate, many at higher prices than this sterling silver one! This example has heavy gauged generous mounts with a pull off lid with impressive finial and wide band with swing handle. All silver parts are properly hallmarked including the nut holding the finial to the lid.
The cut glass barrel is beautifully and deeply cut with a combination of bands of leafy slices and diamonds, which catch the light perfectly.
Size-8.5 inches high to top of handle or 5.5 inches high without handle by 5.5 inches wide.
Weight for shipping-heavy at 955 grams.
With two little flea bites to the glass and one tiny mark to the silver band, it is in very good condition overall.
A lovely heavy piece in seldom found solid silver and deep cut glass, made by well known makers. It is very useful for biscuits, dressing table or vanity items, and is a really wonderful value of its kind.
An imposing piece for the table, which would also make a wonderful gift.
