Child's 1850 English Covered Sugar Bowl
A sweet, English Staffordshire Covered Sugar Box that would have been part of a children’s tea set. This sugar box has a form and pattern often used by Minton Potteries, Staffordshire England. C.1850 There are no marks to help me with the name of the pattern but it resembles the pattern ‘Bertha’.
The main body of the sugar bowl has the flared handles 2 1/2 inches high, without the top and is 4 1/2 inches from handle to handle. Condition is very good with no chips or cracks. The lid may have been used with a matching tea pot but is a great fit for the sugar bowl. This lid has a blossom style final and measures 2 inches high and is in very good condition with no chips or cracks.. With the lid on, the sugar bowl is 4 inches high.
This transfer is a deep purple and has a repeated pattern. This charming sugar bowl has a pearlware glaze.
