This smart little antique 18th-century porcelain creamer is unmarked, but was probably made at the Liverpool factory owned by the Pennington family. Blue and white porcelain was easier to produce than polychrome porcelain because everything could be accomplished with fewer firings in the kiln. The cobalt blue decoration was applied to the porcelain after it had received a low-temperature firing to stabilize it, and in the second firing both the porcelain and the decoration matured at the same temperature. This creamer is in excellent condition except for several tiny footrim chips from use. It is three and three-quarters inches high.
