Vintage Green Depression Glass Mixing/Batter Bowl with Lid and Handle – Made in the USA by D and B CO./US Glass

This is an antique depression glass mixing, or batter, bowl with lid and handle that is as gorgeous as it is functional. The pale, almost ghostly green color of the glass is accented by the simple pattern on the lid, the knob style handle and the two spouts on the bowl with co-responding spout covers on the lid.

There is no measurement marker on the bowl, and is marked D & B Co. on the bottom as well as PAT. APPLIED FOR on the handle.

The bottom inside has a groove for a mixer to rest in.It is a large bowl, stands 4 1/2” tall by 10 3/4” to the tip of the handle.

Historic Admiral Beatty Hotel Sugar Bowl from 1939 Royal Visit – Heavy Silver Plate

This is a sugar bowl from the historic Admiral Beatty Hotel in Saint John, New Brunswick, built in 1925. This sugar bowl is part of the silver service designed specifically for the 1939 royal visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The service was used in 1951 by Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh (now Queen Elizabeth II), with her husband, Prince Philip when they visited Canada on the King’s behalf.

This piece also is historic in the struggle for civil rights in Canada. The dining room of the Admiral Beatty Hotel was ‘Whites Only’ until 1959, when the New Brunswick government forced it’s integration on the request of Mrs. Lena O’Ree.

The Liberal party, in gratitude for the Black vote, asked Mrs. O’Ree if it could do anything for the Black community. She asked that Blacks be admitted to the dining room of the Admiral Beatty Hotel. It is somewhat ironic that today, the restaurant in the Admiral Beatty building is owned and managed by a Black female chef.

The sugar bowl is made of heavy silver-plate on nickel silver. It was made by Wm. A. Rogers Ltd. (then owned by the Oneida Community) in Canada. It is stamped as ‘Heirloom Plate’.
