In the late '20s, Gene Theobald and Virginia Hamill propelled the International Silver Company into the avant-garde with a series of three-piece tea services, each consisting of a teapot, creamer and sugar, cleverly designed as form-fitting units and tray. In keeping with the times, they were designed for expediency and practicality, taking very little space and accommodating America's emerging class of apartment dwellers on the move.
