A silverplate and glass biscuit box made by Martin Hall & Co circa 1870. The container features an unusual lifting mechanism, where you pull the bar below the handle upwards to open the sides of the box. The silver and glass are in good condition. The biscuit box measures 10 1/2 inches tall to the tip of the handle by 10 inches long. The diameter of the opening on either side is approximately 4 1/2 inches.
