Vintage 1950s Gray Creamer - Universal Ballerina in Dove Gray Color
BALLERINA LENDS ITSELF - BLENDS ITSELF - TO REFLECT YOUR WAY OF LIFE... (FROM A 1950S UNIVERSAL BALLERINA ADVERTISEMENT)
In the early 1950s, Universal Pottery introduced their Ballerina line - a graceful, elegant dishware collection that came in a variety of designer colors so that buyers could mix and match pieces with ease and confidence. Available in shades of Chartreuse, Forest Green, Dove Gray, and Burgundy among others, these vibrant colors ensured eye-catching combinations, and their minimalist style ensured that they'd coordinate with other patterns no matter what the design.
Made in Cambridge, OH, the Ballerinas were effortlessly convenient in the kitchen. The series was made for the distinct ability to go straight from fridge to oven to table in one felt swoop thanks to Universal's patented glazing process. Courtesy of that attention to glazing detail, this dishware line has traveled the decades beautifully without much wear and tear or signs of age.
This creamer features the dove gray shade that matches so well with all sorts of patterns from different decades. Elegant in design, we love its cute round handle and its round belly. Pair it with these teacups in the matching dove gray shade and you have an instant tea party in the making.
