Offered is a vintage Howard Johnson's coffee creamer pitcher by Syracuse China. This heavy vitrified china restaurant ware little pourer features the Howard Johnson's trademarked logo, Simple Simon and the Pieman. The coffee creamer pitcher is in good vintage condition with a small crack at the top rim in the back of the creamer, no chips. The creamer measures approximately 3 1/4" tall.
Howard Johnson's restaurants started the next town over, in Quincy, Massachusetts. At one time it was the largest restaurant chain in the USA. Best known for their "28" flavors of ice cream, they also sold meals and in some locations, cocktails. We had one in my town growing up, it was a big treat to stop for an ice cream after shopping. The color palette of the chain, teal and orange was unmistakeable and the Simple Simon and the Pieman logo was placed all over, including the weathervane!
For as popular as this chain was for so long, a surprising few pieces of china remain. I'm a fortunate enough to have quite a few obtained from a private collector. A nice Midcentury Americana find.
