RARE, WELLER SUGAR AND CREAMER IN "ZONA" LINE.
- Source: eBay
Up for auction is a very old creamer and sugar made by Weller. My book says it is called "Zona" although I am aware that this name was used for a different Weller pattern as well. Again, according to my book, the pattern was produced only for a short time and then the rights were sold to Gladding McBean Company which marketed this pattern quite successfully under the name "Franciscan Apple". The creamer, which stands about 3 1/2" tall and is 5" from spout to handle is marked "WellerWare". The sugar, stands about 5" tall and is marked Weller Pottery. The creamer is stained but has NO CHIPS, CRACKS AND VERY LITTLE CRAZING. The sugar bowl is in excellent condition with NO STAINING, CRACKS, CHIPS AND VERY LITTLE CRAZING. Unfortunately, the sugar bowl lid is a mess. It's been broken glued and is really pretty messed up. I thought I had found a replacement cover and bought it, but alas, it was the wrong size. That's why you see a cover on the creamer. I'm just throwing that in as maybe someone can use it. As shelf pieces, these are great and still very serviceable. And, because they were made by Weller, they may be rather rare. Add them to your collection of Weller or even Franciscan ware. I 'll never tell.Buyer pays shipping and insurance.
