Victorian Silverplate Mappin & Webb Biscuit Barrel

Before America had the cookie jar, Great Britain had their own version, known as a Biscuit Barrel. While our cookie jars tended to be whimsical, the British version has always been decidedly handsome and definitely more classic in its design.

At your service, a Victorian Silverplate Biscuit Barrel found at market in the north of England. Produced with shining silver details and intricate, lavish engravings in the form of a lush ivy wreath, this lovely Biscuit Barrel by Britain's premier silversmiths, Mappin and Webb, will be just the thing to safe-keep your "biscuits" in a truly elegant fashion.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good, original antique condition. Measures 7"H x 7"D.

Learn More about Mappin & Webb

In 1810, Joseph Mappin founded an engraving business in Sheffield, England.  The business was eventually passed down to one of his sons (also named Joseph) who carried it on as a producer of cutlery.  Upon his death in 1841, the firm was managed by his son Frederick Mappin, who brought his brothers into the business, naming the firm Joseph Mappin & Co.

In 1846, the business changed its name to Mappin Brothers.  Its partners were the brothers, Frederick, Edward, Joseph and John Mappin.  In 1850, John left Mappin Brothers to establish a new firm originally trading under the name Mappin & Co, but changing its name in 1863 to Mappin & Webb to avoid confusion between the two firms. 

Mappin Brothers continued to operate until 1902 when it merged with Mappin & Webb to eventually become the premier silversmith of England.
