Creamer w/ Jack Straw Pattern

Allan Collier Collection


Originally called Medicine Hat Potteries, the company was acquired in 1955 by Evans Coleman Evans, (a Vancouver construction and building products consortium) and renamed “Hycroft” after the newly completed Hycroft Towers Apartment in Vancouver. Hycroft was later acquired by Albertan Harry Veiner around 1957.

This creamer is decorated in the Jack Straw motif, inspired by a Dominion linoleum pattern called “Pick-up-sticks”.
