Daniel Porcelain Gadrooned Sucrier or Sugar Box 4347 pattern c 1827
An H & R Daniel porcelain sucrier or sugar box neatly hand and very skilfully painted in the highly sought after 4347 pattern and made in the second gadrooned shape circa 1827. This rare, beautiful quality and highly collectable sugar box is unmarked, although we have seen recorded specimens that are marked with the pattern number 4347.
