This saucy 1950s pattern was created by industry artist/sculptor Charles "Ted" Scarpino, and came in 5 different colors. This set is in the glossy dark teal called Sea Green. Low, wide cups with round handles that are slightly pointed, large, flat saucers with an upturned lip…very midcentury modern, and often confused with Russell Wright’s “American Modern” pattern.

The creamer & lidded sugar bowl also have marvelous shapes: the angular sundial handle on the sugar lid creates a great contrast to the curvy lines of the creamer (think ‘blue whale’)…a fantastic set, sure to wow your friends!

Set consists of 6 Cups, 6 Saucers, 1 Creamer & 1 Sugar Bowl w/ lid.

PLEASE NOTE: Color is darker than represented in these photos; more pics available upon request.

Maker’s mark reads “California Life by Laurel of California Made in USA”

Most pieces are in Excellent-to-Good vintage condition – some glaze nicks on the tip of the creamer spout, and, more difficult to detect, on the rim of 2 cups & 2 saucers.

Perfect for lovers of California MidCentury pottery!
