I love pieces designed by Eva Zeisel. Not only was she one of the mistresses (masters) of Mid-Century Modern, designing for great china companies such as Hall, but she also lived in my neighborhood, and helped start one of the most fun events of the year, the Hyde Park Art Fair.

Vintage (1950s) Eva Zeisel / HallCraft

An unusually shaped creamer in a colorful design by the famed Eva Zeisel for Hall China in the “Hallcraft” series, produced 1952-1957, in the pattern called Sunglow (see replacements.com item 38933). It has a bright yellow interior, with a design on the broad front showing yellow leaves on a gray tree.

This neat piece of mid-century modern design measures 4.25 inches high near the tip of the spout, 3.75 inches wide at the middle, and 3 inches deep at the middle (2 inches by 1.75 inches on the oval foot). There is one very small fleabite on the edge of the handle (see closeup photos with red arrows), but no other signs of wear or use that I cansee. There are no chips or cracks or crazing. The colors are intense and the design is crisp.

The mark on the bottom reads HALLCRAFT /BY / Eva Zeisel /MADE IN U.S.A. BY HALL CHINA CO.
