Beautiful Antique Sugar, Creamer and Waste Container Set by Rogers Smith Company that is circa 1860-1870s.
The set features four pieces - a creamer, sugar, the lid and a waste container. The pieces are LARGE - probably for a big gathering as they hold more than the typical sugar and creamer set. Also unique to have the waste container - a piece typically used to put used tea leaves, tea bags or water used to rinse out utensils.
The main pieces in the set have an ornate pattern etched on them, and are monogrammed with the letter “B” on the three main pieces - the lid has no etchings or monogram.
The pattern features an ornate design design that looks like a peacock feather to the right side and other intricate embellishments on the left. On the bottom are what look like a row of tiny etched tassels.
The handles and the top of the lid are very ornate with openwork and curves that feature flower and leaf shapes - just beautiful. The feet on the pieces also have flower shaped designs.
This 4 piece silver plate set consists of a large sugar, creamer, lid, and waste container.
**The lid fits both the creamer and the waste container.
They are marked Rogers Smith New Haven Conn 1933 on the bottom. Based on the hallmark stamp, this set appears to be from the late 19th century.
