Overall: 5 3/8 x 3 7/8 in. ( 13.7 x 9.8 cm )
painted: on bottom: capital letter "C"
Soft paste porcelain sugar bowl and modified ogee lid surmounted by an upright open flower finial with two applied leaves at its base; both parts printed in underglaze blue with a large and a small floral spary on each part; the exterior cover and interior bowl rim are double banded with painted blue lines; printed butterflies are on the bowl; "the three flowers pattern"; marked with the capital letter C.
This piece is from an assembled set of Worcester blue and white soft paste porcelain assembled by collector Edmund Astley Prentis (1883-1967). This sugar bowl has a distinctive shape because it is smaller and more vertical than sugar bowls of this time period.
