cup with feet

i don’t know if this is a coffee cup or a sugar bowl (it actually came with a not-quite-matching lid), but there is one thing i’m sure of –

it doesn’t leak and that is most important.

“girl, why u drinkin’ coffee outta the sugar bowl?”

    That’s a great coffe cup and rather rare. It’s a Salem Free Form coffe cup from Viktor Schreckengost. I dont know the name of the pattern but the most common one that turns up on ebay is called Hopscotch. Great find!

      thanks for the info….it lead me to look up the guy’s work and he designed some pretty nice stuff, huh? i’ve got gobs of hopscotch stuff (plates, coffee cups) but would love one of those free form sugar/creamer sets, even though i have more sugar/creamer sets than i know what to do with and drink my coffee black. i’m an idiot. but i do appreciate good vintage design.
