Literature. The sugar vase is so called because there are sets of this type known with companion sugar sifters which hook over the scroll handles when not in use. They often come in sets of three of which two would be used as tea caddies and another one for sugar. Nowadays these are ideal for use with flowers.
The pair of vases are in very good condition. The engravings are still sharp.
