An exquisite antique sugar bowl and creamer set dating to the late 1900’s, Art Nouveau period .Manufactured by Hughes & Co at Staffordshire China Works. Both pieces have a crisp white background with the china being light and fine. The milk jug has an elaborate large scrolled gold gilded handle and is decorated with a band of tiny pink roses and a turquoise black and gold checkerboard pattern which encircles the outer side. The same lush gold band pattern circles the rim of the sugar bowl. The shape to both pieces is equally lovely with ridged and fluted detail to the body. The colour combination is excellent.
