Novelty Silver Coal Scuttle Sugar Bowl

Sterling Silver Sugar Scuttle - Antique George V (1927)

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique George V English sterling silver sweet/sugar scuttle; an addition to our silver teaware collection

SKU C7532


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver sugar bowl/dish has been realistically modelled in the form of a coal scuttle.

The surface of this novelty silver coal scuttle sugar bowl is plain and unembellished, with a plain applied moulded border to the rim.

The posterior and upper portions of the scuttle design are fitted with shaped hand pieces, accented with thread and leaf designs.

The vessel retains the original hallmarked detachable sterling silver scoop, secured to the upper portion of the scuttle opening via a wirework loop.

Such sugar scuttles are commonly electroplated, solid sterling silver examples with the original scoop are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.

NOTE: * A sugar scuttle takes this name due to the resemblance of a coal scuttle, and is used for serving sugar and sweets.
