Ex coll. Mrs. E. Tatnall (Mary Corbit) Warner

The molded creamer, also called a cream pitcher or cream pot, is of a form sometimes called a "helmet" pitcher among collectors because of its inverted shape.  The body stands on a wide, round foot that provides stability.  The stick-like handle was not used on larger tea- or coffee pots, although this creamer likely belonged to a similarly decorated and larger set.  This creamer has a floral spray in red or burnt orange painted on the body opposite the handle.  A complex floral vine in the same color ornaments the inside of the rim.
