Russel Wright American Modern/Tray and Salts


A group of five salts and a celery tray designed by Russel Wright in 1937. American modern, was produced by Steubenville Pottery from 1939-1959, and is often credited with being the best-selling dinnerware ever manufactured. The ultra modern design emphasized soft curves and simple glazes. A similar grouping is on view in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. For an excellent description of Wright's American Modern dinnerware and it's significance see Design 1935-1965 What Modern Was, Martin Eidelberg, ed., p.36.
