Manufacturer: David Gil, Cooperative Design, Bennington Potters Vermont

Prior to changing the name to Bennington Potters around 1960, David Gil's company was known as Cooperative Design. There, he and other Alfred designers fashioned all sorts of interesting Mid-Century items. Having trained at Alfred University, Gil came to Bennington in 1948. His designs are included in many Mid-Century exhibits and catalogues.

After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores. In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced,"


This #1538 saucer/coaster measures 4 5/8 inches across. It is done in the Turquoise glaze.

The mark on the back shows that this piece, though a 1960s design, was produced later, probably in the early 1970s as it uses the lower case letters for all the words. It was meant to go with the #1537 12 oz. 3 inch tall Double Mug. Originally a dozen mug and saucers were priced at $30 a dozen in the 1964 catalogue. In the Mid-century tradition of multiple uses for an item, it is still a very versatile and functional piece for today's home.

It is in excellent condition. Add it to your Bennington Potters or collection of Mid-Century pottery today.
