A three-color decorated toleware Sugar Box (Bowl) with red and yellow flowers, yellow swags and green leaves, c. 1840. The sugar box has a pinched waste (actually, you can say it is short-wasted) and stands about 3 ¾” tall; the top is 4” in diameter; the base 3 ¼” in diameter. In addition to the floral decoration, there is a band of yellow swags around the base and worn floral decoration on the lid.

The box is in fin condition: there are no splits, cracks or breaks in the tin and surface oxidation is minimal. The lid fits snugly (a little cock-eyed), but there is some minor denting in the skirt around the base. There is wear to the painted decoration on the sides, and the lid is mostly faded away. Sugar boxes with their original lids are hard to find in decorated toleware. Part of a group of decorated toleware items I have in my Ruby Lane Shop. All are from our personal collection.
