My Grandmother’s sugar bowl
Memories Across Europe
In this story, Alice talks about her grandmother's beautiful sugar bowl, gifted to her.
A short fragment of the story

This sugar bowl belonged to my grandmother.

If I stare at this object, made of crystal and silver, what I mostly appreciate is the way it seems out-of-date. It’s also funny to see the surprised faces of our guests when they discover that a clamp is combined to the lid.

We enjoy picking pieces of sugar from this fancy bowl and drinking our sweetened coffee from my husband’s grand-mother’s cups, which are from Austria. It is such a nice feeling to be in possession of such beautiful objects from different parts of Europe, and which marry so well together.
