Wrythen moulded blue sugar bowl with folded rim

Stock Number: 3638

This is what we believe to be an unusual Georgian, hand-blown, blue, wrythen moulded, glass 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 the rim of the base consistent with some 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the base.  
The bowl is of pedestal form in wrythen-moulded blue glass, and measures 10.5 cm (4.2 inches) in diameter at the rim which is folded inwards and crimped to provide an unusual wave effect.  The bowl is decorated with wrythen moulding and sits on a foot which is slightly "kicked in" and measures 6 cm (2.4 inches) in diameter.  The bowl is 5.2 cm (2.1 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.
