Pen and Wash of Sterling Silver Sugar Shaker

Icing Sugar Shaker - Stirling Silver © Tim Mooney

This stirling silver Sugar Shaker is a masterpiece of silversmithing dating back to the 1700s. It travelled the high seas in a camphorwood chest as a prize possession of a canadian sea captain named Simpson. No relation to Bart. Standing about 8″ tall this silver piece is extremely light for its somewhat bulky look. A tricky rendering exercise in deciding on what is actually positive space.
