Gift of Eva Zeisel, Designer
In the years after World War II, tableware with informal shapes appealed to young consumers embracing a more casual lifestyle. In the mid-1940s, the president of Red Wing Pottery commissioned New York-based industrial designer Eva Zeisel to create a "Greenwich Villagey" dinner service. The resulting line of dinnerware, in free-form organic shapes with mix-and-match colors, was promoted by Red Wing as "contemporary, functional, colorful, smart."
