Antique Georgian Glass Sugar Crusher

  • Details

    Stunning antique sugar crusher with beautiful twist stem. This rare and beautiful little piece of history would make a lovely photography prop or even a cocktail stirrer (if used with a short glass) Dating between 1800 and 1850, sugar crushers like this were used to grind lumps of loaf sugar that had already been broken down using special tongs making a kind of rubble. This highly compressed sugar would still be difficult to dissolve in tea, so these little sugar crushers would be used to create finer sugar crystals. This lovely example is in fantastic condition for its age and offers an opportunity to own a piece of history.
