Wedgwood Drabware Sugar Bowl and Stand England Circa 1825


Wedgwood made this drabware sugar bowl and stand in Staffordshire, England, in the first quarter of the 19th century, circa 1825. The design is simple and elegant, and the decoration is minimal, with only a bit of gilt trim accentuating the shape and highlighting the gilded finial. The rich color of the drabware stems from the fact that it is created using dark clay rather than white clay, which then gets glazed. This clear glaze over dark clay produces drabware’s naturally rich, saturated color.
Circular, short, and wide, the sugar bowl is very stable and large enough for plenty of sugar.

Dimensions: 6.25″ across the handles x 4.25″ tall
