Collectible Sugars & Creamers, Volume 1: Akro Agate-federal By Shelly Yergensen For Sale
Ever since humans began adding sugar and cream to their hot
beverages, vessels have been designated to hold these items. Once considered a
luxury, sugar and cream became accessible to the general American populace by
the late 19th century, and the containers to hold them soon became a regular
part of the American household's serving dishes. The sugar (bowl) and creamer
(cream pitcher) have always been known for their extraordinary reliability. Not
just a seldom-used fancy dish for special condiments, the dedicated sugar and
creamer provided white wholesomeness on the breakfast tray, sweet indulgence
for afternoon tea, and sophisticated elegance for after-dinner coffee.
The designers of 20th century pressed glass came up
with many beautiful tableware lines, and nearly every one of those lines had at
least one sugar and creamer set. Whereas plates, cups, and bowls had to give up
whimsy in exchange for functionality, the sugar and creamer could incorporate
delightful design elements, as long as they continued to serve their purpose of
holding the sugar and cream. Glass manufacturers also designed hundreds of
stand-alone sugar and creamer sets. And while the sugar and creamer were
partners, there was no rule that said they had to be twins, so in some cases,
the pair would sport an asymmetric creativity.
Sugars and creamers are a collector favorite, not only
for the variety available but because of their small footprint. Collectors can
enjoy and display a wide variety of sets in a small space. With 680 photos and
more than 350 different sets represented, this identification guide proposes to
the 20th century pressed glass collector that this tabletop duet is more than
just an after-thought.
Glass companies represented in this book include:
Akro-Agate, Anchor Hocking, Bartlett-Collins, Beaumont, Cambridge, Canton,
Central, Consolidated, Co-operative Flint, Degenhart, Dell, Diamond, Dunbar,
Duncan & Federal.
