Literature: 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.
This excellent silver bowl is in very good condition. Stamped on the base with a full set of clear English silver hallmarks.
Maker: John Deacon
John Deacon, apprenticed to John Moore 1759, free 1766. Mark entered as plateworker 1776; his previous mark would have been entered in the preceding book which is missing.
