A charming variation of the Plain Round styles of the 1870's, Anthony Shaw used lavish copper lustre decoration at the handles and finial surrounds. The uplifted handles are molded with a tied bow seen both on sugar bowls and on pickle/relish dishes. The medallion arch typ[e finial seems out of keeping with this style of handles. Creamers have a slightly scalloped rim and high spout, very similar to Shaw's Cable and Ring body style.
One collector owns a sugar bowl marked "A. Withmar & Co., Importers, St. Louis, Mo." This is proof positive that the housewives of midwestern America prized their Shaw Tea Leaf.
