Description

Though cynics may argue this is a sugar bowl that has lost its cover--we disagree.  The unusual gilding, which overlaps the rim by a quarter of an inch or so, and which is clearly mercury gilding instead of electrogilding, lead us to believe that this is more likely a communion cup, on the basis of several English communion cups with nearly identical gilding.
