Manufacturer: Bennington Potters, Vermont, David Gil

Prior to changing the name to Bennington Potters, 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.

This particular design is like Norman Bel Geddes famous Skyscraper cocktail shaker for Revere in that the cup has a dual purpose. In the Bel Geddes set, the top of the shaker is actually the same piece which forms the bowl of the goblet. In Gil's version, the sake cup doubles as the stopper for the sake bottle.

This set was apparantly sold with 6 cups and the decanter as one can see still written in pencil on the bottom of this sake bottle. I don't know if there were seven cups or six in the original set. I do know I have seen it in this early Gil color and a deep brown glaze. I only had one extra cup so now this bottle has its stopper. I particularly like the unglazed portion of the neck which helps one grip the bottle when pouring. A great and early Gil design. The cup and the bottle are both signed David Gil Bennington.
