Sugar bowls

A sugar bowl is a teaware item that is used for sugar storage. We also use sugar bowls to serve as decorating elements of the kitchen interior. A sugar bowl is a cup-shaped vessel made of glass, ceramics, porcelain or metal. Sometimes a sugar bowl has a lid with a notch for sugar or sugar tongs. The cover protects the sugar from moisture and dust. A sugar bowl can store granulated sugar, crushed sugar, or candy sugar. The capacity of a sugar bowl usually varies from 9.8 to 23.6`` (25 to 60 cm). The first sugar bowls had a round shape and had a saucer on top, instead of a lid. Sugar bowls were large and resembled oriental items of tableware. The first sugar bowl was used only for utilitarian needs and never performed a decorating role. It was not sold as a part of beautiful tableware as well. The first sugar bowl that resembled the modern one appeared in the XVI century. Drinking a cup of hot flavored tea became a family ritual. The tradition to use expensive tableware has become an irreplaceable attribute of a rich table. Sugar created a flavor for tea and coffee and made their taste more intense. A sugar bowl became a part of the tea drinking tradition, reminding everybody that to create a better image of something you need to just add some sugar to your life... or to your tea.
