New York City-based industrial designer Eva Zeisel designed the austere, elegant forms of the "Museum" dinner service in 1942-43; they were introduced to the American public with great acclaim at the Museum of Modern Art in 1946. As the first set of fine china in modern shapes produced in the United States, the creation of "Museum" was a landmark in the history of American tableware.
