Overall: 4 1/4 x 3 7/8 x 3 in. ( 10.8 x 9.8 x 7.6 cm )
Deep blue mold 'blown' lead creamer, blown in a 3-part mold (McKearin G III-23); globular body, tall neck, widely flared rim pulled out to form spout; applied handle crimped and curled at lower handle; drawn disk foot; diagonal ribbing around neck within horizontal rings; wide band of diamond diapering; between horizontal rings are 9 large diamonds each containing sunburst with diagonal ribs in between; rayed bottom (type IV); pontil mark.
The lack of wear, thin handle, and unusual attachment of the handle suggest that this object may have been made in the twentieth century.
