Any thought's on these would be welcome, the sugar has a lead crystal ping and an opaline look to the glass.

The sugar measures 5 1/2 inches in height with a rim diameter of 5 3/4 inches and the creamer 4 3/4 inches in height.

Regards Chris.

Nice find, and certainly a rarity, especially with sugar AND creamer, but I'm pretty sure that the sugar matches Davidson pattern 196 (shown as a version with cover in the Davidson catalogues of unregistered designs from between 1880 and 1890).

For some reason, there is no uncovered version of the sugar or a creamer shown in the catalogues, though there is a matching pattern 196 salver and a covered butter shown. 

I will try and add some photos from the catalogues for reference tomorrow.

I've just rediscovered this old post of mine
https://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,53092.msg301543.html#msg301543
but sadly the photos no longer appear with it. At the moment, I'm also struggling to find the relevant photos files but I will re-post them here if I do come across them.
