Retro Purinton Slip Ware, 4 Piece Collection, Hand Painted, Chartreuse Collection, Table Top Wear, Circa 1940's. One Tea/Coffee Pot, One Creamer & Sugar Bowl are currently available.

Purinton Pottery manufactured a wide variety of hand-painted dinnerware from 1939-1959. Their output was certainly comparable in quality and beauty to that of comparable companies as Stangl, Blue Ridge and Red Wing. Bernard Purinton was working on a new cost effective and efficient casting method, which was patented and called Slip Ware.

If you didn't get the opportunity to take a ceramics class while continuing your education, slip is a mixture of clay in water mixed together to form a creamy consistency. Remember the scene in the Movie Ghost, with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze at her potter's wheel? She was using slip to help build a piece of pottery.

This Collection consists of the following pieces:

The Seven Cup Tea/Coffee Pot measures 8 1/2" high X 9" from spout to handle.

The Open Sugar Bowl measures 3 1/4" high X 4" 1/2 wide measured from handle to handle.The Creamer measures 3 1/4" high X 4 1/2" wide spout to handle there is a tiny chip,I included a dime for you to see the actual size of the chip, Refer to photo # 4.

The Pattern is called Chartreuse with green flowers and leaves, accented by brown highlights. In time the green of the leaves has faded but that is what the beauty of this Collection is all about, history in the making! There is some crazing inside the sugar bowl and on top of the tea pot lid but in no way does it detract from the visual beauty of this Collection.

Dr Who wants to say, love The Righteous Brothers and start creating your moment in time.

Please note the snack sets have been sold, the Tea/Coffee Pot and Sugar & Creamer are currently available.
