Production Dates: 1915-1982
This is the Fostoria American Large Cream Pitcher, holding approximately 9½ ounces. It is of substantial size and weight, and the 2-Handled Sugar (with Lid) is an excellent accompaniment piece. As far as size goes, this pitcher is larger than the Individual and Tea-Sized Pitchers – with an approximate height of 4″, and a width of 5½” (lip to handle.)
This larger cream pitcher had a long production life and can be found rather easily in the aftermarket. A word of caution – there is a very similar piece in another glass pattern called American Whitehall. If you are thinking of purchasing this pitcher, you will need to examine it carefully to make sure that you are buying genuine Fostoria – and not a look-alike piece.
The Fostoria American Cream is the largest of the three tabletop creamers. It is another pioneering piece in the American line. It debuted in the 1915 Catalog Supplement that first introduced the American pattern, and it was actually offered in a 4-Pc. Tea Set. The four pieces included the Cream, a Sugar & Cover, a round Butter & Cover, and the Spoon (aka Spooner). A customer could buy the individual pieces separately, or as a set.
