You will not find a set any better than this - it is amazingly bright and clean and looks like it has never been used!

This eye catching cream pitcher and covered sugar bowl set in brilliant yellow is from the 1950s "plastic" era. These were distributed by the Quaker Oats Company as premiums, advertising their popular Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix. This set depicts Aunt Jemima and Uncle Mose, each serving as a handle. The figures, each about 2-1/2 inches tall, are in superb condition with NO damage of any kind. Detail is amazing: you even can see their facial features!

The bright yellow sugar bowl and creamer are about 3 inches across and hold about 1/2 cup (we did not try them). Both pieces are embossed on the bottom: F&F Mold & Die Works Inc., Dayton Ohio Made in U.S.A. (The "line" across the bottom in our photo is actually a mold mark - NOT a CRACK!) The lid fits tightly on the sugar bowl.

Background: Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix got its in the late 1800s, when an enterprising flour mill owner began making and selling pancake mix as a way to move more flour. Unfortunately, his plan did not pay off, and he sold his mill. The new owner, inspired by a minstrel show, renamed the mix "Aunt Jemima" and hired a former slave named Nancy Green as a spokesperson to play the character and advertise the product. Green did a fantastic job, even operating a pancake baking display at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois. She succeeded so well establishing a brand that in 1913 her employer renamed his company Aunt Jemima Mills. Tragically, Green died in an accident in 1923 and did not live to see the massive Quaker Oats Company buy the company in 1933, which took the name to new heights, modernizing the image and bringing on new products.
