Description: These three Handleless Sugars are very rare.  We have included the far right one although we are not 100% sure it is a period piece.  What they have in common: inset rims for the tops (see 3rd pic), 3 sampans pictured on each top, glazed bottoms, footed bottoms. They have different knobs, a pointed blue ball knob, a blue ball & a white ball.  2 of the 3 have flat rim lips, one has a turned up lip.  The 2 flat lips are painted blue, the third is not.

The middle sugar bowl has “CHINA” under the glaze on the bottom which indicates it was produced after 1890.
