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. The interior retains the original glazed cream colour ceramic liner without damage.
The box is marked by the top notch silversmith, Daniel and Arter. Victorian in era, dating to around 1890. Excellent condition, measuring 5 1/2" in diameter; 5 1/4" to top of drum; 5 1/2" to top of drum sticks and 8 1/2" to top of handle when upright.
