I was quite pleased to find a set of the 1950's Red Ware by SHAFFORD Black Cats Tea & Condiment collection. They are in excellent lightly used vintage condition. The items included are as follows:
TEA POT...6" tall x 8" wide...pinch of red clay showing through in back of one paw...not a chip, but spot that was not painted by factory.
CREAMER...6" tall x 5" wide..slight loss of pain on side of one bow...& light transparent all over spots on surface.
OPEN SUGAR...4.5" tall x 4.5" wide
CONDIMENT SET...7" wide x 4" tall..bow ties are shaded due to crazing & small paint loss..one spoon is repaired..good job..does not affect us.
SALT & PEPPEER SET...4.5" tall x 2" wide...some small transparent spots on salt cat.
They do not have any cracks or chips. The bottoms have MADE IN JAPAN stickers. They are a fine looking set.
I also have a second teapot that is stamped with SHAFFORD and the design number. The base in in very good shape...but the cat top is faded. This is not included in the collection.
