Iroquois Casual China by Russel Wright

13 Dec

IMG_3320

Ca. 1940 to 1964.  The brown colour is called Iroquois and the pattern is  Casual China designed by Russel Wright.  If  you collect mid century modern dishes, you will be familiar with the designer Russel Wright.  He designed the most popular line of dishware in American history called American Modern which is widely collected.  He also designed furniture which is much sought after today.

These items were found at a thrift store and I wish there had been a complete set but alas, this was all I found after scouring the store several times over.
