Sowerby Pattern 685 Sugar Bowl
« on: Yesterday at 03:35:12 PM »
 This is a 685 sugar bowl shown with a lid in the 1874 catalogue P40. Whether this one had a lid originally I'm not sure, there isn't any wear around the fire-polished rim or anywhere. It has quite a few uranium colourant seeds. Diameter is 5", height 4 1/2", and the density comes out at 2.75g./cm2.

Here's mine with a lid, but a much more uranium yellow than yours and weighs a ton http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=917
