A Mid-century partial "American Modern" dinnerware set in two colors, chartreuse and seafoam green, made for Steubenville by American industrial designer Russel Wright.  Made between the years 1939 and 1959 for Steubenville, American Modern was one of the most popular ceramic dinnerware sets of the era.  This partial American Modern dinnerware set includes eight dinner plates, a creamer, salt and pepper shakers, lugged soup bowls, and gravy boat and underplate.  Each dinner plate measures 9 3/4" across with a profile height of 3/4".  The underside of each plate is stamped "Russel Wright MRG. by Steubenville.  Firing pins are evident on the underside of each plate.  The soup bowls each measure 6 3/4" long, 5 1/2" wide, with a profile height of 2".  The underside of each of the bowls is marked "Russel Wright MRG. by Steubenville" and firing pins are evident on the underside of each plate.  The creamer measures 7" long to the end of the handle 3 1/2" wide, and 2 7/8".  The underside is signed.  The gravy boat measures 10 3/8" long, 3 3/4" wide, and 2 1/2" tall.  The underside is unsigned.  The underplate, which is signed, measures 11" long and 6 1/4" wide.  The total count and condition of each size is as follows:

  • Dinner Plates:  8 Pieces (4 chartreuse and 4 seafoam green).  All are in very good original condition, with little to no evidence of use.  Some of the plates may see some hard-to-detect crazing on the undersides due to age.
  • Salt and Pepper Shakers:  1 set (1 chartreuse and 1 seafoam green).  Both pieces are in good condition but with crazing to the glaze.

  • Creamer:  1 Piece (Seafoam Green).  Light crazing but no chips, cracks, or repairs. 
  • Gravy Boat with Underplate:  1 set (1 chartreuse and 1 seafoam green).  Crazing evident but no chips, cracks, or repairs.
