Lovely vintage cylindrical wooden biscuit barrel with metallic lid was used to store biscuits in England but you can use them store whatever you like. They would be perfect for loose tea, your favorite cookie stash or even ice cubes. The porcelain liner is waterproof and can hold both liquid or dry items for a limited time (as there is no seal, liquid may leak from lid area if moved).
The wood on these barrels has a smooth burnished finish and some has fancy chrome plate designs on them. The barrel features a swing handle and a metal collar- these are either gold or silver as you can see in the pictures.
As its an antique item, it shows signs of ageing but overall is in a very good vintage condition. There may be a few scruffs or cracks to the exterior and shows some patina, which only adds to its beauty. It oozes authentic Victorian vibe which makes this item stand out. These have been imported from England.
Approximate measurements 6" high by 5" diameter.
