Sugar Bowl

Paul Revere Jr. American

Not on view

This matched set of covered sugar bowl and creamer is fashioned in the fluted Neoclassical style so popular with Revere's postwar clients. Urn-shaped sugar bowls, both plain and fluted, appear repeatedly in Revere's ledgers as "sugar urns" or "fluted sugar vases." The helmet-shaped creampot with high looped handle and square plinth also epitomizes Neoclassical taste. Each piece is engraved with bright-cut bands of tasseled swags and wavescroll ornament. According to family tradition, these objects were made as a gift for a Virginia bride.
