This excellent silver bowl is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Excellent patina. Good definition on the corners. Marked on the side with a full set of English hallmarks. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Early sugar bowls, like the small size teapot, were of small capacity due to the rarity of tea. Small circular bowls from the late 17th century can occasionally be found, these were probably tea bowls originally but by 1710 the sugar bowl started to appear, often with a cover; these were usually round however octagonal examples are very rare and extremely desirable. Around 1730 larger bowls were introduced, possibly for slops and by the 1760s the swing handled sugar or sweetmeat baskets were available.
