Edwin Knowles' Fashion shape was first produced in 1935. The rounded and scalloped shape was designed with this heavily embossed design.
This creamer like other hollow ware in the shape was given ornate, flat top handles. Most Fashion Shape lines were sold with floral decals and the line offered an assortment of "standard" pieces with various sizes of plates, platters, bowls, tea or coffee cups and saucers. The sets also included covered casseroles, sugars and then creamers like this one.
The line has become very difficult to find. Solid color pieces without a floral design are very rare. This creamer is an uncommon find!
The creamer has the general Edwin M. Knowles backstamp, date code, and the shape's name. The date code indicates the piece was manufactured in 1936 or 1937. The Fashion Shape is thought to have only been produced during that time frame. The creamer remains in very nice condition without staining or cracks. There is a small area of light crazing on the top of the handle. There are a couple of teeny tiny "flea bites" near the pouring rim and one tiny black dot near the rim that is likely a speck of sand within the pottery from manufacture.
Very nice example of the not often found Fashion Shape in a rare solid color.
