White felspathic stoneware, oval sugar bowl or sucrier with a removable cover; two acanthus leaf-shaped handles with a furl at the end and attached just below the shoulder on opposite sides; and "22" impressed on the bottom, which is attributed to Sowter and Company (1800-late 1820s) of Mexborough, Yorkshire. The domed, oval lid has a floral finial over a band of alternating fleur-de-lis and acanthus leaves on a stippled ground; this finial is associated with Sowter and Company, and has been excavated on the Chetham and Woolley site. The shaped body has a shaped gallery with a scalloped top, under which scallop is a star in each of the linked circles; over the shaped, sloped shoulder; over four panels, two with applied sprig molding, divided by foliate and acanthus leaf molded columns: one panel has a classically dressed woman leaning against an urn in front of an obelisk with an urn by her feet, and the reverse panel has a woman facing an urn on a pedestal with a shield on the base. The lower section of each panel has four vertical acanthus leaves over the shaped flat base.
