A Danish Silver Sugar Castor

A Cohr Danish silver sugar castor, adorned with beaded trimming, stands on a circular base.

The smooth body of the castor eschews elaborate ornamentation, suggesting a preference for a clean, simple design. The base and the cap rim are encircled by a cohesive beaded motif, enhancing the castor's elegant appearance.
