Treasure Chest Thursday--Hiser Creamer
This little white ceramic creamer (milk glass?) was a gift to my husband's mother, Helena Smith Hiser from her aunt, Leta Alolla Burkett Tate. Leta married Charles Ray Tate, Helena's maternal uncle, brother of her mother, Mildred Claudine Tate Smith.
Thankfully, Helena took the time to give a little family history on the bottom of the creamer. There are no maker's marks on the bottom. It may have been bought at a 5 & 10 store; however it is a treasure nonetheless.
