This sugar bowl is from the late 1800s. It is made of Russian silver and is from Russia. My great-great-grandmother and great-great-grandfather were the first to use it. They were friends with famous Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff because my great-great-grandmother was friends with his wife. He came over to my great-great-grandmother's house a lot. When there he would drink tea and very often take sugar from the sugar bowl. My grandma was a pretty good singer and would sing while he played the piano. My great-great-grandmother passed the bowl down generation after generation. First to my great-grandmother, then she passed it down to my grandma who then passed it down to my mom. This bowl has been in our family for a very long time. I learned of this bowl from my mom and my grandma.  This is important to my family because it has been passed down and holds many memories.
