This gorgeous covered sugar bowl (sucrier) was made by John Yates, Shelton, Staffordshire, about 1825. It is about 6" high. The Yates pattern number, 1391, is handpainted in red on the base.
The collar of the sucrier is molded in the distinctively Yates oak and mistletoe motif. Examples of this form can be found in the Yates chapter of "Staffordshire Porcelains", edited by Geoffrey Godden.
The bowl is in excellent condition. The handles are original and intact. There are no cracks, no chips, and no repairs. It rings when tapped. The top is in good condition, with just one hairline crack and no chips, etc. The knop is intact and original. The top does not ring when tapped.
I also have for sale here the matching Yates teapot, and a non-matching Yates creamer which is done in the same colors of mazarine blue, pale yellow, and gilding.
