GRANITEWARE CREAM PAIL with Lid Designed in Bright Blue and White Swirl Circa 1880 - 1920
Featuring an early GRANITE WARE CREAM PAIL, circa 1880 - 1920.
The antique CREAM PAIL is decorated in the gorgeous "Blue & White Swirl" pattern and the mouth of the pail is trimmed in black. A black wire bail handle with a black painted wood grip is attached. The matching enamel lid has a black enamel loop handle.
Measuring 7 ¾” tall with the lid, the piece is in wonderful vintage condition for antique granite ware with very minimal rust or chips. The chips are primarily inside the rim and around the inside of the pail lid. As you can see from the photos, they are not obvious with the lid on the piece. The cream pail appears to be gently cared for. Please review the photos carefully as they have been taken from several angles.
Imagine this wonderful piece as an addition to someone's French country or farmhouse style decorating!
Enjoy your shopping!
Enamel & Granite Ware
Enamel ware is made from an old process of coating metal with porcelain, which became popular in the 1800s. By the late 1870s, a new form of enamel ware was developed, called "granite ware."
Granite ware was designed with decorative patterns resembling granite, ranging from mottled, speckled, spatters or swirls. Early granite ware was turquoise blue with white or green.
Both enamel and granite ware were used in the production of early kitchen utility ware.
