About this object

The swelling form of the creamer is reminiscent of the feminine waistlines that inspire many of Zeisel's designs. Like the cup and the sugar bowl, the creamer is set on an oval foot to match the oval shape of the saucers and plates. The handle is also atypical in that it is not attached at top and bottom; rather, it rises from the top of one side of the cup. The handle's height rises at least 1/3 inch above the rim in a manner reminiscent of Biedermeier and Empire ceramics.

The handle's height rises at least 1/3 inch above the rim in a manner reminiscent of Biedermeier and Empire ceramics. The handle's high arc ends in a soft tip that is molded to appear to lay against the body of the cup rather than disappearing or being reintegrated into it. There is a slight circular depression inside the creamer where the handle meets the body.
