Pair of biscuit containers, Diederik Willem Rethmeyer, 1791

silver (metal), h 7.6cm × d 13.5cm × w 490.0gr. More details

These two plain containers are decorated only with a beaded edge. Their form is determined by their function. During dessert, biscuits were served from the round container, and oublies (small rolled-up waffles) from the rectangular one. Such silver biscuit containers almost always come in pairs and are a typically Dutch phenomenon. Their shape may have been derived from simpler models made of tin.
