STUNNING VICTORIAN FOLDING BISCUIT BOX



















There is nothing like 19th century Victorian silver plate and this
James Dixon and Sons version of a folding biscuit box or biscuit
server is no exception.

It dates to the late Victorian period around 1885 and bears
the first corporate mark for James Dixon and Sons of the trumpet
(bugle) and banner which was granted in 1879.
The second mark with their name or initials added to the trumpet
symbol was granted in 1890 so this dates our gorgeous biscuit box to
between these two dates.

It is in very good condition with little or no rubbing found to
the silver plate.
The catch is a little stiff on one side but still works.
The gilt lined interior shows a little deterioration with a bit
of spotting but nothing too serious.

The patent number 11,350.85 is stamped underneath.
The James Dixon mark is stamped on one of the magnificently pierced
grills inside.

It stands 27.5cm to the top of the handle and 32cm wide open
(not including the catches).

Overall the condition is excellent, the craftsmanship is
exceptional and it is simply a delight to the eyes.
