Peaseware Painted Covered Sugar Bowl in Original Blue Paint
Please excuse the glare in the photos, but that's just what it is. The surface patina is nice and dry. This little Peaseware covered sugar bowl is just a treasure. The color appears to be an oxidized blue, but still a true blue.  The bowl is classic Pease, embodying all the characteristics that made them known as Woodturners of re -known.  They were were to woodenware what the Shakers were to baskets.
David Mills Pease was born in Deerfield, Massachusetts in 1815, moving to Ohio prior to 1838.  Records show him in Cascade Valley, Ohio in 1850.  He began wood turning about that time and was followed in this activity by three sons.  He introduced a new style of spindle-turned woodenware that surpassed other regional designs.  He possessed an inherent aesthetic sensibility nurtured by exposure to historic Connecticut River Valley refinements. The impact of visual resources of 18th and 19th century high-style furniture is reflected in Pease forms and those items made by him and his family are very distinctive and rank among the best of the best in design, form and aesthetic beauty.
H 3-5/8" D 3-1/2"  The Paint speaks for itself. Circa mid-19th century, perhaps a bit earlier.
