Stand Corrected

Some time ago, I blogged about the above covered bowl and was under the assumption that it was a sucrier (sugar bowl). Well, now I know the difficulty of attributing usage when you don't have the whole set! Below is a picture of a breakfast set that sold in auction a few years ago; the bowl is exactly the same in shape. There was no descripton of the purpose for the covered bowl, but it is clear that it was not intended for sugar, but perhaps something more savoury, like porridge. The rest of the set comprises of a toast rack, pepper pot and salt bowl.

About Me

My photo
Sometimes, life doesn't turn out the way you expected. And sometimes, it is exactly as it was 'meant' to be. But whilst i'm not a believer in fate or fatalism, I do believe that life is a both a learning experience and an obstacle course to be climbed and clambered over in the most creative way possible! In doing so, you'll get to where you should be even if it's not where you'd imagined.
