Description: Canton Sugar Bowls and their accompanying teapots and creamers make up a confusing world in defining the many, many variations to be found. Designations that have come into common useage will be physical descriptions of the bowls such as “Drum Shape”, “Pear Shape”, “Ball Shape”, “Barrel Shape” and “Conical Shape”. In buying any sugar bowl make sure the top fits well.
This late Pedestal Base sugar bowl has a rain cloud border on the top, has what looks like 2 piece handles, and has a persimmon knob. The bowl is earlier then some sugar bowls but not as early as the twisted handled bowls. The bottom is glazed and the top sits on the rim and has a flange that prevents it from sliding off. We have never seen a matching teapot or creamer for this bowl. NOTE: this bowl has a questionable top, looks like it could be the same as lighthouse teapot tops.
