Russel Wright was a designer ahead of the curve. His line of dishes produced for Steubenville Pottery of Ohio were made between 1939-1960 and were intended to bring beauty to the everyday table.
The American Modern butter dish is a rare find. This piece has a few small chips to the edge of the plate, but is in otherwise good vintage condition. Measures 8.25" long, 3.75" wide, and 2.25" tall.
