PA Blue Painted Sugar Container

Year: 19th century
Weight: 1 lbs

Fresh find. 19th century Blue painted sugar bowl. Purchased last weekend from the estate of a Pennsylvania gentleman. At just under 7” it has been used for generations by one family giving this blue painted jar a mellow patina just the way we like to find things. I was told that the sugar was poured out a few days earlier. The lid has shrunk with age as it should but does fit on only when turned to the proper position.
