Russel Wright was a leading industrial designer of the 20th century. While his work included all aspects of home furnishings, this new book focuses on his revolutionary dinnerware designs. With over 500 color photographs, detailed information is presented on Russel Wright's original dinnerware, glassware, pottery, and fabric. Especially featured are Wright's Casual China and American Modern lines, which are among the most popular and influential dinnerware lines in history. Created in a variety of colors and restyled during long production periods, these large dinnerware lines present a challenge for the collector, which this book will help them unravel. Other rarer forms and designs are also featured, many of which have never been pictured in any book before. A current detailed pricing guide is also supplied that takes into account the differences in value based on scarcity of certain colors and current collector demand. All in all a great book for both students of twentieth century design and Russel Wright collectors.
