This week I’m sharing some sweet little goodies that I have in the china cabinet. While digging through (frantically looking for something to post), I pulled out this box and the wheels started turning. It’s a pretty good what’s it too! It’s a Victorian crystal and bronze sugar casket in a diamond point pattern. Sugar was once not readily available, and like tea had to be imported. It was so precious as to be kept under lock and key as well. Thus, these pretty little boxes, called caskets. (Maybe this should be my next collection.)
This is a sugar scuttle and scoop, a silver replica of the ones used for coal. It’s gorgeous on the table and no one can resist a chance to dig in and sprinkle a little sugar, yum!
What luncheon or tea would be complete without a master sugar bowl with its own set (12) of demitasse spoons? These were first made by American silversmiths in 1874 and remained popular through the 1920’s.
This is perfect for sprinkling on powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar at your hot chocolate bar. It’s a sugar castor, muffineer, or just plain old sugar shaker.
Since we’re sharing sweets, I’m putting in my favorite honey server. His silver wings lift and he has a shovel to drizzle on the honey. Sweet!
Last, a little thrift store find for syrup. (It must be for one, I’d use that up at one go!) It has a cork with an attatched spout and this little brass collar that says syrup, adorable! Thanks for sharing the sweet life with me!
And thank you all for participating in our "What's It Wednesday" party!
