Hand written on back, Expo Gold Medal, and then Brevette F R (made in France), but no impression mark or other signature so we don't have the maker. Looks for all the world like a fine old Sevres pieces, but it's the large-sized sugar bowl typical of the late 1700s to 1800s, when sugar was introduced as a valuable confection for the truly wealthy and the size of one's sugar casket was almost a symbol of or announcement of the size of one's wealth, so the old sugar bowls are particularly appealing. Old Paris porcelain is as much as we can claim without signature. Its'a gorgeous old thing, entirely hand painted, raised gold enamel and florals. Excellent condition throughout. A joy for any table, and if not for sugar, use it for a bouquet and set the lid to the side. Fabulous, isn't it.
Measurements: 6" tall; 6" wide across handles and upper rim is 4.5" diameter.
Very good to excellent condition, entirely hand decorated, raised gold enamel and hand painted floral bouquets on 2 sides. No chips, no hairlines, no cracks, nothing to report but a few tiny dots of gold missing here or there (visible in our images for your review)
