This rare sugar bowl was made by Sèvres of France in 1848. On the bottom is the Sèvres factory transfer-printed mark indicating the date year it was glazed and fired, yet it is missing the other period mark of the factory. The hand painting is beautiful with the lid showing flowers and the two lovers separate from one another. However, on the sides the lovers are shown together twice with interspersed floral panels.Trim is gilded with two white and gold floral scrolls on each side. It appears to never have been used despite its age of 173 years. It weighs 6.6 ounces, is 4 ½ inches tall with the lid on and is 4 inches wide at the top scrolls. Interestingly, faintly etched in the bottom you will find "C 48-S" and a fishhook "J" with what appears to be a smaller "j" slightly above.
It would take a pencil rubbing to. This will make an excellent addition to your collection of fine French porcelain. This item is in the category "Pottery & Glass\Cookware, Dinnerware & Serveware\Bowls".
