Here is the larger Mason's Vista Ironstone Red to Pink Transfer Ware Square Creamer. The Vista pattern, here in shades of pink to red, features an elaborate transfer castle motif that wraps around both the front and the back of the creamer. The design depicts a family on the steps in the foreground within a framework of trees. The top border is a circle of leaves. The interestingly curled handle is also trimmed with the leaf motif. Though the color is usually referenced as pink, the transfer is more truly in shades of red.
This larger square creamer measures 4-1/4 inches tall. It is 2-3/4 inches wide by 3 inches across each side. The handle adds another 1-1/4 inches.
The backstamp features the word "Mason's" arched over a Red crown on a tablecloth banner with the words "Patent Ironstone China" followed by "Vista England." This mark was used by Mason's around the 1930s.
A bit of stubborn sticker residue near the top of the left side shows brown in the photo. This should clean off. There is fine, all-over, non-discolored crazing. A 1/2-inch seam line near the foot was never smoothed before firing, but there are no chips or cracks.
