American Pewter Coffee/Tea Sugar and Creamer, ca. 1830 -1840
A very good matching lidded 19th c. American pewter sugar bowl and creamer with strap handles, most probably Connecticut and possibly attributed to the Boardman group of Hartford Connecticut.
Except for some top and interior pitting in the sugar bowl, the unmarked set is in excellent condition. The sugar bowl stands approximately 7" to the top of the wooden button finial and has a 3-1/2" base. The creamer stands about 4-1/2" tall to the rim and has a 3-1/8" base.
The attribution is based on a very similar creamer with a broken C type handle (see American Pewter in the Museum of Fine Arts pieces (see Thomass fig 158, page 141). A similar broken handle is also known on Connecticut Pewter and pieces by William Savage of Middletown Connecticut (see Ebert Collecting American Pewter page 77). Similar strap handles are also known on Ashbil Griswold pieces (see Ebert page 75).
