Consisting of 15 Granite Gray stem glassware in three different sizes all in Very Good condition. Since the glasses were hand blown, slight differences of colors and dimensions occured. American Modern was a line of Mid Century Modern tableware for entertaining designed by Russel Wright (1904-1976) in the 1930s. It was a popular collection of Modern shapes and colors for dishes and glassware produced from 1939-1959. The glass articles for this line were produced by Morgantown Glassware Guild and the dishes by Steubenville Pottery. The glasses were available in coral (pink). chartreuse, gray and seafoam. This line was so popular that even Elanor Roosevelt and Mamie Eisenhower had a set of dishes and because of the high quality of the glass production at Morgantown, it was chosen as the supplier of glassware for the Kennedy White House. Morgantown Glass Works was founded in 1899 in West Virginia to produce pressed and hand blown glassware. The company closed for a short period in the 30s and reopened as Morgantown Glassware Guild producing high quality glassware until 1965 when it was bought by Fostoria Glass Co. and finally closed in 1971.
