RAYMOR "GREEK SUMMER" CERAMIC CHALICE
Founded in 1935 and continuing well into the 1970’s Raymor was a New York-based company that created an array of high-end decorative household items such as ceramics and lighting.
Raymor commissioned both well-known designers and well-established European studios to create products that they then distributed across the United States and beyond.
Raymor is a prime example of a mid-century design firm that deserves more scholarship and formal documentation of their creative output.
A short list of the designers and artists they employed (or imported) is impressive: Gilbert Rohde, Donald Deskey, Ray & Charles Eames, George Nelson, Eva Zeisel, Arne Jacobsen, Tapio Wirkaala, Hans Wegner, and Ettore Sottsass to mention a few.
This "Greek Summer" ceramic chalice is evocative of their best designs that came from Italy with their fantastic forms and beautiful coloring.
