Light amethyst wrythen-moulded sugar bowl

Stock Number: 4889

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, amethyst glass, English, wrythen moulded sugar bowl dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800.  
The bowl is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot commensurate with 200+ years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
The bowl is ogee shaped with an everted, folded lip and measures 11.3 cm (4.5 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is enhanced with broad wrythen moulding from the base to the lip.  The bowl sits on a small, conical foot that measures 5.7 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter.  The bowl itself is 7 cm (2.8 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  There is a small, white stone embedded in the bowl rim dating from manufacture and numerous small bubbles and inclusions in the metal.  It weighs 156 g. (~5 1/2 oz.).
