Item Description

For your consideration, Liberty Blue Staffordshire covered sugar and creamer, in excellent mint condition MINT IN BOX NEW! NEVER USED. The sugar and creamer depicts Paul Revere and Betsy Ross.

From the flyer on the Liberty Blue collection :

In early 1973, Grand Union commissioned a special set of dinnerware. It was to be the most extensive and exciting collection of blue-printed Staffordshire glazed ironstone since 1860. It was to be authentic in every detail . . . in every step of its manufacture. And it could only be made by the potters of Staffordshire.

The results exceeded even our expectations. From the original copper etchings, created exclusively for this collection . . . to the absolutely authentic Wild Rose border . . . (created circa 1784) . . . is dinnerware that recreates an age and an art thought long gone.

It took the potters of Staffordshire to create Liberty Blue. It took a tradition of craftsmanship, passed from generation to generation, to duplicate each step on the original process. And it took Grand Union to bring you Liberty Blue in all its glory and loveliness . . . to use, to treasure, to pass on to future generations . . .

Take home a piece of American History exclusively

Every piece is unique . . . a true collector's item . . . worthy of the finest museums, private collections . . . and your dinner table.

The Liberty Blue pattern was manufactured 1975-1981 for the Grand Union Supermarkets, as a promotion celebrating the nation's bicentennial .
