Symbols by Russel Wright
Few people had more effect on American taste than Russel Wright. He was an industrial designer who revolutionized interior design with his tableware, beginning with "American Modern" for Stuebenville Pottery in 1937. Two years later he began designing for Bauer Pottery.
It was not only the shape but the color that
was so distinctive
Symbols in another colorway.
Particularly the innovative lime green called chartreuse.
The fabric was designed for tablecloths to
coordinate with the dishes.
The plastic version of Wright's tableware
was Brookpark from Melmac.
Wright used nature's colors in a novel combination that
defined American modernism in the 1950s
