This is a French Haviland & Co Limoges hard paste porcelain sugar bowl jar. The date is circa 1876 to 1880.
Th sugar bowl is 6 ½” high to the top of the finial and 6 ¼” wide handle-to-handle.
The glaze is white with a gold wedding band trim.
The blank is called the cable shape as you can see on the finial and the handles.
I acquired a collection of Haviland and Limoges sugar bowls from an estate. The owner used the different jars as tea caddy jars, to store loose leaf tea, a different tea in each jar; the tea was purchased from Upton tea, so it was very fine tea I had to throw out from each jar.
There is gold wear on the mouth edge, and it is almost gone. The handles show some gold wear. There is a little bit of wear elsewhere. On the inside edge, where the lid sits, there are three small nicks, which are visible in the overhead photo. There are no other nicks, chips, cracks or crazing.
The green maker’s mark is H & Co double underscored. The blue overglaze decorator’s mark is under the lid and on the bottom, and it is Haviland & Co Limoges inside a double circle. Very faint on the bottom is an impressed registry mark.
