Russell Wright "style" Bun Warmer

Category: Sold

You entertain in your post-moderne villa...Mies has NOTHING on you, dear. You appreciate design and usability.

Russell Wright combines both in spun aluminum designs that are to die for!
He was here LONG before Martha Stewart...and Martha doesn't hold a cherished place at the Smithsonian, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in NYC!

This "bun warmer" is not signed by Mr. Wright. In researching it, a Russell Wright design is all we could come up with. It could be the real could be an excellent reproduction of the same period. We have no idea! As always, it came from the "Bungalow Collection" in the house between 1900-1950.

At the last 20th Century Nostalgia Auction, a similar piece was bundled with two smaller Wright pieces and sold for $97.95. We can't promise it is Wright, though the era is correct and the piece is quite clever.

Vintage spun aluminum muffin warmer. Style is true to the Wright futuristic design, spun aluminum ball-shaped body with curved wooden handle and wooden ball knob. The warmer is in very good condition for age with normal wear (several vertical marks on aluminum in back and front caused from opening and closing the lid. Some scuffing on bottom of base.) Contains original insert--a wire mesh screen so warm breads or steamed items do not get soggy.

Affordable retro for the new collector!
