Here is a vintage covered sugar bowl in the beautiful blue Indian Tree pattern by John Maddock and Sons, England. The monochromatic blue design on the bowl cover is a crooked branch of an Indian Tree with an abundance of exotic flowers. A Greek Key design is around the rim of the cover, and the bowl has the Greek Key design around the rim and under the rim. Branches of exotic flowers stretch around the bowl in four places. The fancy open and pierced handles, as well as the loop finial on top, are also trimmed with blue.
This lovely old sugar bowl measures 2-3/4 inches tall at the rim, and 4-1/2 inches with the cover. The rectangular rim is 6-3/4 inches long across the handles and 4-inches wide.
This bowl was made by John Maddock & Sons between 1896 and 1945.
It is stamped with a blue Crown and Circle mark that reads "John Maddock & Sons Ltd. Royal Vitreous England." The pattern name "Indian Tree" is stamped below the crown, and the numeral 3 is beside the mark.
The inner rims of both the bowl and the lid show discoloration with wear, and there is a 1/4-inch teardrop-shaped brown stain inside the bowl. The foot shows some grease stains, and the bottom of the foot is also brown with wear. There are also a few stains within the openings on the handles. There are no chips or cracks.
