This dainty biscuit barrel is a beautiful blend of white and rose colored glass decorated with sweet white flowers on vines with brown leaves that encircle the barrel. The metal appears to have been silver plated but has darkened with age. The metal handle has a slight gold tone. The height without the cover is 2 3/4", which makes this biscuit barrel smaller than most. It may have once contained confectionery. The outside rim diameter is 4". The glass barrel is in good condition with no paint loss. The metal rim has a couple of small rough spots. The ring around the barrel is not fixed to the glass barrel.
