Seller: likes_everything (372) 100%, Location: Collingswood, New Jersey, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 173991102782 For your consideration, pair of Vintage, HAND PAINTED, PORCELAIN CHINA MUFFINEER / BERRY SUGAR AND CREAMER SET manufactured by Moriyama Pottery JAPAN Muffineers were a distinct and specialized kitchen utensil / Victorian tableware item. They were used in the 1800s to describe a shaker used to hold powdered sugar, cinnamon or other granular condiments which could be spread on muffins, scones, and other breakfast goods. Many were quite elaborate and are very collectible today. Sometimes called a 'berry sugar', they were often set out with a cream pitcher. Today, vintage muffineers are often sold as “antique salt shakers” or “sugar sprinklers” to collectors, and they are rarely used for their original purpose. This delightful, two piece matching set features an orange floral pattern all over the body of both pieces. Both are trimmed with gold gilding along the top rim, the handles and finial of the berry sugar / muffineer and the handle of the creamer. The creamer is approximately 5" tall x 3" wide (3 3/4" at handle). The muffineer is approximately 5 1/2" tall x 3" at widest point. The backstamp is green and states "Handpainted Japan" with the Moriyama Pottery symbol surrounded by a wreath of leaves similar to the wreath found on the Noritake stamp. My research shows Moriyama Pottery was located in MoriMachi in Shizuoka prefecture and was established in 1911. Both are very nice specimens that are in great vintage condition; I do not see any chips, cracks or repairs, though they both show crazing on a majority of the pieces. I personally think the crazing adds character to the pieces which are nearly 100 years old!
