--- Quote from: Bernard C on May 27, 2005, 08:20:56 AM ---It reminds me of a rare perfect Sowerby pattern #1125 (late 1875–early 1876) covered pedestal sugar I had with two monkey handles and a similar monkey handle on the lid;  sadly smashed to smithereens with all my other glass as a result of my road accident years ago.   I've never seen another, nor have I seen a matching creamer.   See Cottle p31 for the uncovered sugar trade catalogue illustration.

Wonderful piece ... my wife and I wish we had one, too!

Note the similarity in design to the piece which has dogs on the sides and a cat on the cover. We have a one of these with a Davidson mark, and I think one is also shown in an Inwald catalog.
