Additional Information : We admire the logic behind the patented mechanism to open the lid. The handle would only be used for carrying the biscuit barrel and would need to be moved out of the way for ease of access to the contents. An oscillating cam is a proper engineering solution.

The finest biscuit barrel we have ever seen.
