Cobalt blue pattern-molded lead glass sugar bowl with cover; "U"-shaped bowl with contiguous pedestal foot with pontil mark pattern-molded with diamond lattice pattern; low domed cover pattern-molded with diamond lattice pattern with applied swirled ball knob.
Most 18th- and 19th-century sugar bowls have applied bases, unlike this example, which suggests that it may be a later reproduction.
