Object ID # 1956.013.006
Object Name Bowl, Sugar
Title Victorian Spoon Holder?
Lexicon category 4: T&E For Materials
Made Unknown
Place of Origin Not determined yet
Description Large, colourless, clear pressed glass sugar bowl (or a spoon holder) with squarish handles, 19th-c. There is no lid for it. Spooners did not have lids, so this is what makes us think it might have had that function. It has square type handles (look like mortise & tenoned pieces, but they are just molded). The pressed pattern is not yet identified. There is a mold line apparent down each side and through the handle.
Makers mark None
