ANTIQUE SILVER BISCUIT BOXES

Invented during the Victorian period by George Palmer, of Huntley and Palmer’s Biscuits, the biscuit box soon became a popular and fashionable household item throughout Britain, coinciding with the rise in popularity of afternoon tea. The majority were produced in silver plate, with sterling silver pieces being rare. Novelty designs, including the stylish ‘Folding Biscuit Box’ are highly sought after, with silver examples of these being the hardest to find due to the small number produced.
