William Will Sugar Bowl

$12,500.00

Probably one of the most important, if not the most important, pewterer of the 18th Century was William Will of Philadelphia. His working dates were from 1764-1798. His forms were varied and frequently similar to high style Philadelphia silver of the period. His storied past included serving in the revolutionary war as a colonel. He was also Under Sheriff of Philadelphia for a time. This 5” high sugar bowl is one of his most successful forms. The condition is excellent. In A History of American Pewter, revised & enlarged edition by Charles Montgomery, on his list of 100 great examples of American pewter on page 259 he shows this form for its stylistic attributes.
