A pair of Tomorrow's Classic candle holders in white glazed earthenware designed by Eva Zeisel (1906-2011) between 1949 and 1950 for Hall China Company (Hallcraft) of East Liverpool, Ohio. The mid-century modern candle holders of oval form have raised sides creating a rim at the top for standard sized taper candles; the design can also be used as bud vase for flowers.
Zeisel's elegant, biomorphic Tomorrow's Classic tablewares began production in 1952, quickly becoming America's fastest-selling line of modern dinnerware. Most of the Tomorrow's Classic pieces were decorated with colorful or linear decals; the unadorned forms in plain white represent Zeisel's original intent.
Both candle holders are in very good condition free from chips, cracks, or repair, measuring 4.5 in. height x 4.25 in. width x 3.25 in. depth. Printed manufacturer's mark underfoot includes Hallcraft's intertwined "HC" monogram logo with Hallcraft / Classic / Shape By / Eva Zeisel Made in U.S.A. by Hall China Co.
