Sugar Bowl

<< >>
Description
Two-handled, open, seamed oval sugar bowl engraved "SC" in conjoined foliate script on its bulging sides. Quadruple-reeded molding at concave-sided rim ends in points below the high, thin, bracket-top handles which extend from rim to base, their upper portion has five reeds, tiered towards center, while plain lower half rises to sprig at middle. Inset flat bottom is struck "MOULTON" incuse serif letters, which has been overstruck with an illegible name; "809" and "19oz 5g" are incised nearby. Creamer and sugar bowl DL*383550-DL*383551 are from the same service.
