This piece is a combination of a rare English antique with a charming story!  This gorgeous antique brass and silver plate cookie canister or Biscuit Barrel (as the British would say) was made in the 1800's by Mappin  Brothers.  The company was founded in 1810, in 1835 the sun mark was registered as their trade mark and in 1859 the company was dissolved and reformed.  So this piece was made before 1859 and bears the sun symbol.  

Also, what is very charming about this piece, is it is marked "222 Regents Street and London Bridge"!  It is hand chased with holly leaf and berry designs allover it.  It sits on 3 ornate feet. It must have originally been meant for Christmas cookies during the time period that Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol! The company's actual history records show that Charles Dickens purchased a claret jug from them in 1859!

8.5 tall x 6.5 D.  Very good condition with overall wear of the silver which has left it with a soft  and lovely patina finish.
