This covered sugar and creamer by Hampshire Pottery likely dates to c1910. The covered sugar measures 3.5" high by 6" across by 4.5" in diameter. The creamer measures 2" high by 4" across by 3.5" in diameter. Hampshire pottery produced a whole line of souvenir pots, including this sugar and creamer set. Each bears a transfer image of the 'Oldest House, Edgartown, Mass', which is the Vincent House. They are glazed in a basic ivory glaze and blushed with light green handles and accents, and they are trimmed in gold leaf bands. The sugar has a button lid. They are well marked 'Hampshire' on their bases. They are in original condition, with some factory glaze nuances, including a tiny clay tag on the left front side of the sugar, and a glaze skip on the lower backside. The creamer has a factory glaze pop on the interior of the spout. All glaze nuances can be seen in the photos. They are both in factory original condition, which is amazing as these are well over 100-years young. The Vincent House Museum, 99A Main St., is considered the oldest house on Martha's Vineyard. The 1672 residence, moved from its original site in 1977, contains original woodwork, brickwork, glass and hardware. The house's furnishings depict architecture and life on the island throughout the last 4 centuries. Docents conduct tours of the museum and other historic structures.
