Art Deco Gold Green Brama Chintz Biscuit Barrel Fancy 1940s
This is a neat art deco design vintage chintz biscuit jar or biscuit barrel with fancy silver plate fittings.
The biscuit jar was made by Midwinter, England now a part of Wedgwood in 1940-1946 in a pattern called Brama consisting of a green ground with a gold chintz grapes and grapevine overlay.
The Brama pattern was substituted by what used to be the Springtime pattern in 1946-1947, so the dating is pretty narrow.
The silver plated fittings are fancy and are marked EPNS with S F and 2 crossed arrows. The lid has a hand engraved floral design. This is what you would call a transitional piece from art deco to the purely decorative period to follow.The biscuit barrel measures 6 inches high to top of jar by 5 inches square and is in very good +++ used vintage condition with no chips, cracks or wear. The interior is in excellent condition. There is plating loss on the lid from polishing.
But a lovely shape and pattern.A really great vintage chintz piece.
