Vintage 1960s Restaurant Ware Creamer - Buffalo China Crest Green
Learn with both your head and hands. Nancy Matthews Elliott Edison (1810-1871)
This vintage restaurant ware creamer was made by Buffalo China in Buffalo, NY in 1968 as part of their Crest Green pattern. Like most vintage restaurant ware this piece comes with a story, not about this pattern specifically or who nor where it may have dined, but about the manufacturer itself.
Buffalo China (originally known as Buffalo Pottery) was started in 1901 and from the get-go, it made records. It was the largest fire-proof pottery in the world at the time it was built and it was the first pottery in the world to operate completely by electricity. Those two bits of "edge" on the industry allowed Buffalo to power its way through the century turning out millions of pieces of pottery for the wholesale, retail, and restaurant industries.
Family-run throughout the 20th century, Buffalo China navigated the highs and lows of the American economy and continued to produce high-quality dishware in incredible quantities, but unfortunately, the pottery failed to succeed following the sale of Buffalo China to a local ceramics company in 2004. Luckily, pieces like this vintage creamer survive as symbols of entrepreneurial spirit.
