This is a beautiful Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG) covered sugar bowl in the hard to find Flower Band Pattern. This pattern is also known as Frosted Flower Band and as Bird Finial. It is a two part mold and dates to around the 1870’s. The manufacturer is unknown but the American Pattern Glass Society believes that the manufacturer may have been Gillinder & Sons. We’ve also seen this piece or a very similar one described as a covered pickle bowl.
It has a wide frosted band decorated with flowers. The foot is trimmed with the oak leaf and acorn motif. The finial on the cover has two love birds.
The bowl measures 5 3/4” high, 9” high to the top of the finial, 4 1/2” in diameter and 7” across from handle to handle.
There is a small stress fracture in the handle of the bowl which occurred during manufacture. There are no chips, cracks or discoloration. There are two chips on the finial of the cover - one on the top of the left wing and one on the tip of the right wing..
