Black basalt, sugar bowl with lid commemorating Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) with a glazed interior and moulded decoration. It is decorated overall with a wandering line pattern. On each side is a shell in relief. On one side the shell bears a design of a monument with an obelisk on a base inscribed 'PRO PATRIA'. This is flanked by Britannia and Fame inscribing 'NELSON Octr 2...' on a shield. The other shell has a ribbon inscribed 'TRAFALGAR' placed across the staff of a British ensign, flying above a gun, shield, laurel branch and inverted foreign flags. The trophies are flanked by a pyramid and crocodile representing the Battle of the Nile and a fortress representing the Battle of Copenhagen. A Greek key pattern runs around the top of the bowl and is echoed in the shape of the handles on the bowl and the knob on the lid.
