Straus Drape Cream & Sugar Set (Damage) – SOLD
This is a beautiful set in Straus’s Drap (Richmond) pattern. Unfortunately, it does have some damage – there is a handle crack in the sugar bowl and a flake to the lip of the creamer. The good news is, this is a very functional set and is being offered at a bargain price.
The Drape pattern displays beautifully on this set. They somehow managed to make it fit perfectly around all 3 handles. A hobstar sits between a sweeping drap of notched prism and crosshatching. Holding up this structure are two pillars of unusual crosscutting. The handles are finished in the traditional Straus styling – triple-notched but with straight lines rather than curved. The bases are finished with a 16-point hobstar.
The damage mentioned in the first paragraph is the extent of the damage to the set – there is also some minor roughness to the edges of some cuts. The creamer measures 3 1/4″ tall and 4 1/2″ wide and the sugar bowl is 3″ tall and 6″ wide.
