This rare early American Sugar Bowl belonged to Uriah and Maria Beach of Lancaster,Michigan. I presently have c.1820's portraits of them on my sight for sale.
This Sugar Bowl dates around that time period and is marked on the bottom as Stone China.
Uriah Beach married Maria Gerald Westcott in New York and moved to Manchester,Michigan where both lived out their lives.
Uriah according to records was born in Vermont and Maria was born August 26th 1806 in Butler,New York.
He was listed as a furnace man and molder in the Manchester,Michigan census. They adopted several children along the way. Oddly the children's names kept changing with each census search.
Around 1870 Uriah died and was buried in Manchester,Michigan. Maria died somewhere in the 1880's.
About as early and as documented as you will ever find another piece.
