I love the color and shape of this creamer or small pitcher. It is very midcentury in style with the sky blue clay color to the crisp crème colored handle. IF by chance you chip this dinnerware it doesn't show up since the blue clay is all the way through these pieces. This piece has one small chip under the handle. You have to feel for it before you see it. The dimensions are 3 ¼" tall and 4 ½ "in diameter at top. The bottom of this piece is 1 ¾" in diameter. I found some history of this wonderful Homer Laughlin China and will share it with you. "Skytone is a modern design and advertised as "Americas newest Dinnerware Creation in a subtle sky blue body with handles in snow white". A few stylized decorations were applied to this shape designed by Don Schreckengost. Don Schreckengost, who was art director for Homer Laughlin, designed Skytone and Suntone on the Debutante shape. Suntone and Skytone was a smooth, sleek, no frills line and were introduced in 1950. Mr. Schreckengost not only designed, but he also wrote the ads. In a 1954 ad, he describes Skytone, "A modern day shape used in soft light blue body, with white handles and knobs. A splendid day by day retail line. The coloring is in the body, and chipped ware shows the blue instead of a white as in colored glazes. It is very durable and economical." Another ad, "Americans Newest Dinnerware Creation. By blending subtle Sky-Blue color with the clays for permanence and uniformity, and accenting with snow-white handles for charm and elegance, Homer Laughlin presents Skytone, styled to enhance any table. Not only was Skytone produced in solid blue, but also in decorated dinnerware. When decals were added to the dishes, the pieces are known by the name of the decal.
