Delighted to have for sale this magnificent quality Antique French Sterling Silver Sugar Bowl, finely crafted by known and renown prestigious Parisian silversmith Cardeilhac, founded by Antoine-Vital Cardeilhac in 1804.

One of the main attraction to this stunning Sugar Bowl is a centralised oval cartouche with raised monogram OSM - Who was it? Your imagination can go as far as it gets.
