Antique Early 19th-century sugar box and lid (sucrier) by John Yates, this is a stunning and unique piece, decorated with lovely hand-painted flowers, gilt swirls, and gilt flowers/leaves. The sucrier has no mark but carries pattern number 705, dating c1825 which is known as the Late Regency period.
In very good used antique condition, one of the handles has been repaired. There is fine crazing underneath and there is rubbing to the gilt and the pattern which is clearly visible in the pictures.
The picture has "bright areas" which are reflections, not damage.
