A very beautiful set of Antique French Sterling Silver & Crystal Sugar Bowl and lovely French silver-plated sugar tongs. The sugar bowl (or Bonbonnier/sweetmeat serving bowl) has gorgeous hand-cut crystal body with sterling silver base. The crystal is thick and the cutting pattern is very unique, with classic star-cut bottom. It comes with Antique French Silver-plated Sugar Tongs. The Set will be a welcome addition to your well-appointed tea table!
Hallmarked the French Minerva No.1 mark on the base, which guarantees .950 purity of sterling silver, used in Paris since 1838. This is one of the most high quality silver standard, purer then .925 sterling silver. Maker's mark in diamond shape, but we could not find the reference. A trace of silver-plated mark on sugar tongs, but not clear enough to read.
