A quatrefoil sugar bowl, cover and stand all with floral decoration. The cover with a plum like fruit and leaf finial. Both the stand and the cover have painted dark purple rims. Both the stand and the bowl are marked with incised, “DV”. The stand has no punctuation and the bowl has a period after each letter. The stand is approx. 8 ½ by 7 inches (22 x 18 cm) and the sugar bowl with cover is 4 inches tall, 6 ½ inches long and 5 inched wide (10.5 x 17 x 13 cm).

Condition; the stand has no chips cracks hairlines or repairs. There are a couple of scratch areas in the glaze where the sugar bowl rested. The sugar bowl is in excellent shape with one minor area of scratching on the outside and some minor scratches on the inside. The cover has a chip on one edge and a crack at the spoon slot that extends from a firing flaw.

These pieces are decorated with intricate flowers and the slightly somber tone of the decoration gives the piece a formal and rococo air.
