Vintage Peter Pots Pottery, Sugar and Creamer, Lidded Sugar Bowl, Mid Century Design, Seagull Blue, Blue Gray Stoneware
A fantastic sugar and creamer set by Peter Pots pottery. The covered sugar bowl and creamer is in their Seagull Blue; a deep cool blue shading to lighter blue and soft gray. The sugar bowl lid features a pretty vine across the top. The handled creamer measures approximately 4" tall x 5" spout to handle. The sugar bowl measures approximately 3 3/4" wide x 3 1/2" tall. Each piece was handcrafted and signed "Peter Pots". Because each piece is handmade, there is a slight variation between pieces. In very good vintage condition, appears unused.
Peter Pots Pottery was started by Oliver Greene at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1948. The pottery has been in continuous daily operation ever since. Since 1954 they have been located in the historic Glen Rock Mill in West Kingston, RI.
Oliver and Elizabeth Greene have garnered many awards for their ceramic designs, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Good Design Show, the Syracuse Museum's Ceramic National and Wichita Museum shows. Their work is part of the permanent collection at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art.
