Description

Fine quality 19thc. silver plate biscuit barrel by the Atkin Brothers, Sheffield England. Marked HA EA FA, EPNS (electroplated nickel silver). Atkins Brothers was in business from around 1853-1925. Exact date of this barrel is unknown. Given the Asian aesthetic period looking stylized ferns, I would estimate around 1880s/1890s.

Measures about 7" tall to top of finial and about 6 7/8" base diameter. The opening of the barrel is about 5" in diameter. Four claw feet support an attached pierced gallery tray. The body has one of the nicest impressed designs I have seen - -very naturalistic with ferns and trailing ivy. The lid is hinged and also has the fern and ivy motif. The edge of the lid has a very nice little detail which ties together nicely with the design of the finial perimeter.

CONDITION: Overall, silver plating is in great condition, with just a touch of tarnish. Hinge works well and lid closes easily and firmly. There is an irregular area on the inside rim of the lid above the hinge. I am not sure if it was in the making or something that occurred at a later time. I also see very minor plating loss on the exterior on both side of the top portion of the hinge. See photos. It does not in any way affect the working of the hinge or the overall look of this beautiful biscuit barrel. There is some surface wear and discoloration on the bottom of the interior.
