Description

Lovely English Wedgewood Jasperware biscuit barrel with silver plated rim, lid and fold-down handle - circa 1890. In very good condition.

The silver plate has a nice patina. The inside is very clean.

The raised scene with cherubs encircling the piece is a beautiful milky white colour (typical of jasperware in the period). This piece has been treasured by our family for many years.

Note: Jasperware is a type of pottery first developed by Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s. Usually described as stoneware, some authorities have described it as a type of porcelain.
