1960s Federalist Ironstone Creamer in Buttercup Yellow - Made in Japan for Sears
Yellow... sunlike, golden as a crown, buttercups in a field, marsh marigolds, a finch's wing, a plastic flute. Richard Grossinger
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 brightened up the kitchen during morning coffee time and afternoon tea.
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.
