Both of these lovely Victorian Milk Glass pieces are footed, gilded, and ornate! Each piece has a scroll and heart pattern gilded in the burnished gold cold paint. The gold on both the cream pitcher and sugar is virtually intact --perhaps as intact as it's ever been. Just above the four feet, there is a thin row of beading that surrounds each of them. The creamer and sugar set are oval pieces and measure 3 3/4" tall. As is typical of the milk glass of this era, the edges are characteristically rough and the mold marks prominent indicating these are not later copies. The sugar has a raised number (41) on the bottom. There is a rim chip on the open sugar that is not readily noticed because of the inherent unevenness of the edges of the glass. An internal rim is also rough and suggests that there could have been a top to this piece. The small milk pitcher has an angled handle with the decorative beading and a wide pouring lip. Gorgeous examples of early milk glass.
