Six Sugar Bowls

There are certain objects spared from the shard pile … this oversized vintage sugar bowl is one of those things.  Never had the heart to break it and it’s so big – for a sugar bowl –  plus it reminds me of Mackenzie-Childs meets Alice in Wonderland. vintage sugar bowlPretty sure this is a Victoria Austria sugar bowl in brilliant White and Gold Porcelain Oversized Sugar Bowl with Lid, regal Gold Trim and Scalloped Edges. Unable to find out more information about the makers mark on the bottom of the sugar bowl but I did find a sold out listing – for what looks like the same sugar bowl – on replacements.com. A bit more research lead me to believe that this piece may be Victoria Porcelain Schmidt & Co Bohemia sometime in the early to mid 1900’s. Beautiful condition with no chips or cracks, some shelf marks on footer with minimal fading gold.

After deciding to sell everything that won’t fit in 973 square feet,  I had to choose one – and only one – sugar bowl for our little home, this vintage cutie didn’t make the cut … literally;) and it’s On Sale Now in the Shop.

Who says people don’t read or follow directions!

Closing the brick & mortar must have given me all the inspiration I needed to learn how to build my online shop. Bye, bye Etsy … it’s been real.

Besides, it took Sylvester Stallone 10 years to get Rocky on the big screen. I beat him by 2 years. Insert me patting myself on the back here. I did it!
