Here is a RARE and highly elegant piece of Early American tableware that should be considered as a “museum quality” object! This is a blown three mold sugar bowl with matching lid. Probably produced at the Keene NH or Boston & Sandwich Glass Works, 1815-1825, this delicate beauty is perfect, and with the proper provenance, ex. William Elsholz, Volume 1, lot 77. It sold for $5000 + premium in 1986… 33 years ago!
This lovely footed bowl has a galleried rim, and a PERFECTLY fitted blown three mold (matching) lid. The piece is like a shimmering jewel, with a lead glass ring that goes on forever! When the opportunity arises to buy a TRUE glass masterpiece, don’t miss it!!
