1960's Federalist Ironstone Creamer in Classic White - Made in Japan for Sears
Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony. Coco Chanel
One of Sears most popular brands of dishware during the 1960s and 1970's, Federalist ironstone came in three colors - white, yellow and blue floral. Adaptable, attractive and appropriate for a variety of serving situations from rustic to elegant, Federalist's scalloped edges and simple embossed lines helped make mealtimes a feast for both the eyes and the belly. While the actual dishes were made overseas in Japan, Federalist Ironstone became a true American classic thanks to Sears. An expensive but necessary luxury, they offered this dinnerware in 53 piece sets (service for 8!) for $44.95 in 1970 which is equivalent to about $300 today.
Once part of that original ensemble, this pretty petite creamer was also accompanied by a matching sugar bowl - a pair that surely added classic charm to each and every kitchen morning when it came to coffee and tea time.
Still highly collectible today, Federalist Ironstone in any of its three colors represents a timeless vintage style that is simple, effortless, and beautiful. Thanks to its accommodating design, it easily mixes and matches with a variety of vintage and modern-day dishware, proving that classic style always has a place at the table no matter what the time period.
