Pictured above: Antique Wedgwood Jasperware Cobalt Biscuit Barrel Circa 1880 or prior.
This lovely Biscuit Barrel has a silver rim marked "EPNS Made in England" and the underside of the silver finial is marked "Dictorial Plate 956". We believe the rim was installed at a later date.
Measuring 6 inches in height to the top of the finial and 5 1/2 inches in diameter at the widest part of the base, this Wedgwood piece is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or restorations. There is a minute "flea" at the top where the rim meets the pottery, which we believe was the result of the newly installed rim.
The base of the Biscuit Barrel is marked "Wedgwood", which indicates a production date of 1880 or prior.
