Creamer 5" tall x 6" wide including handle, marked 1028 USA (incised)
Covered Sugar 5 1/2" tall x 4 1/2" wide, marked Great Northern USA (embossed) 1031 (incised)
The numbers on the Great Northern cookie jars are 1025 & 1026.
There is a matching teapot, marked Great Northern Railroad (nasty twist huh)
The light color is more cream than white. The brown most closely matches the roof of the cottage cj.
Were the Creamer & sugar made by Shawnee?
Was the teapot made by Shawnee?
What is the Great Northern Railroad connection?
I was asked the question, "Is there a Great Northern Pottery?"
Have you seen any of these pieces?
What do you think?

5 -11 - 03 My own thoughts are Great Northern was a jobber that contracted a pottery to make a product for their customers. Still doesn't answer the question of who made these pieces though :-)
