NOTES BY CLEO M. AND G. RYLAND SCOTT, JR IN THE LATE 1950’S
This Venice Sugar Bowl was purchased while in Geneva in 1957. We purchased it from Armand Whittekind, who described it as follows: "An oval sugar bowl with cover, Stand and Spoon, genuine old Venice porcelain, Cozzi factory, flower decoration, period 1765-1770." He further says: "The Venice Sugar Bowl is most amusing for its shape and remarkable that the original spoon survived."
This specimen has the usual large red anchor mark.
