russel wright american modern salt + pepper

  • Image 1

First made in 1939, Russel Wright’s American Modern salt and pepper has stood the test of time.  Their unique “pinched” depressions make them easier to hold, and transformed what could have been an ordinary set to one of merit.  In pure white.

Made in California by Bauer Pottery, a company founded in 1909 for whom Wright designed after WWII.

Russel Wright (1904-1976) was an American industrial designer.  From the late 1920s to 1960s, he created a succession of artistically distinctive items that helped bring modern design to the general public.  Wright believed that the table was the center of the home, and designed tableware to larger furniture, architecture to landscaping, all according to his concept of easy, informal living. It was through his immensely popular housewares and furnishings that he revolutionized the way Americans lived and organized their homes in the mid 20th century.  Wright is best known for American Modern, the most widely sold American ceramic dinnerware in history, manufactured by Steubenville Pottery between 1939 to 1959.
