Cut sugar, what is it? I found this recently and don't know anything about it -how it was used etc.. On the bottom it's stamped Germany and looks like a 74. Can anyone give me an age and any info on this piece. Thanks

    "Cut sugar" means sugar cubes.

    Here's a twin to your crock missing it's lid, this one says just "Sugar" :

    What I don't understand is the pattern appears to be Meissen Blue Onion, but it does not bear the Meissen mark of crossed swords so leads me to believe it's a reproduction, but an old one.

    Ahh I did not read the description on that webpage, just saw the photo and it seemed similar! So it's made to look like Meissen in the Blue Onion pattern, but it's not.

    Thank you both for your input. I just measured the canister and its 8 1/2 inches high by 7 inches at widest point--it will take alot of sugar cubes to fill it.
