This Moorcroft Macintyre Florian Ware Poppy biscuit barrel was designed and produced around the turn of the 19th century (1898-1900) and has the Macintyre factory mark and has an inscribed W.M. painted monogram and des, Rd No. 326471.
Moorcroft only produced the barrel itself and the frames for these were created by other silver and metalsmiths. This frame is electroplated and the curvature of design follows the flower pattern of the Florian design itself. A wonderful piece.
