Rare Midwwestern Pomona Sugar And Creamer, Circa 1900:
This attractive glass made circa 1900 has been given the name “ Midwestern Pomona Glass” in the American Art Glass literature. The exact manufacturer is unknown. With its frosted body and amber stained rim and handles, it resembles the New England Glass Companies Pomona Glass of the 1880's. This matching sugar bowl and creamer are decorated with colorful enameled flowers, leaves and stems. The sugar bowl measures 3-3/4 inches square and 2-7/8 tall. The creamer is 4 inches tall and 3-1/2 inches in maximum diameter. Both have polished pontils on their bottoms and are in excellent condition with no damage. On one side of the sugar bowl, there are 4 or 5 small foreign objects in the glass near its rim. Such objects are common in antique glass of this period and just reflect the crudeness of the manufacturing process. They are not damage and have been there since the piece was made. You can see these in the last picture provided. They rare set will be a nice addition to your collection. Satisfaction guaranteed.
