The J.H. Stouffer decorating studio of Chicago was started in 1905 and continued until 1952. The high period of Stouffer's hand painted china appears to have spanned the period of 1905 to 1925. During this time the company employed some of the best decorators of that era.
This lovely sugar and creamer set, circa 1912, is decorated with tiny white and medium blue forget-me-not flowers with shaded green leaves, The background is a pastel blue on the top and a soft creamy shade on the lower portion of each item. The background colors are separated by a gold scroll design. The handles and top edges are also gold decorated. The interior finish is a pearl iridescence. The sugar measures 5" from handle-to-handle and 2 3/4" high; the creamer is 4 3/4" from handle-to-spout and 3" high; both sit on four small feet.
The china blanks carry the mark of the Pfeffer & Lowenstein porcelain factory of Schlackenwerth, Austria. The Stouffer Studio mark in red is the mark #5, circa 1912 - 1913. There are no cracks, chips, repairs or decoration wear.
