Volkstedt Strawflower Sugar Bowl

This is a sugar dish made by Volkstedt around 1770. It is handpainted with an underglaze blue strawflower design and has the typical ribbed design to the paste. I have not seen this shape before and it is nice to have one with the lid and both being in superb condition! It is marked underneath with the underglaze blue crossed pitchforks with the line across mark. The sugar bowl is in superb condition with some firing flaws to the paste the most noticable ones being two firing crack - one on either side above the handle but both are hidden by the lid and just a sign of age on these pieces as they are common on early Volkstedt. The finial in the shape of a grape is very nice and the shell handles are a bit odd but nice as well. The lid is a bit loose. The piece is 3.75 inches tall, 6.75 inches wide and 3.75 inches deep. Please email me for more information or photos.
