John Prip was craftsman-in-residence at the Reed & Barton plant from 1957-1960, and afterwards served as a design consultant until 1970. In 1958, he was asked to design a tea and coffee set to compliment the Diamond pattern flatware designed by Gio Ponti in 1954. The angled bodies, handles, and spouts and the elongated diamond-shaped finials reference the handles of the flatware line. The set was well received and was advertised as late as 1976 with the headline "The Diamond is Forever.
