Inside This Box...

This modernist box is marked Raymor, Italy on the bottom. This may lead one to believe that an Italian company named Raymor actually manufactured this fantastic little ceramic. Not so. Raymor aka Richards Morgenthau & Co., was a New York-based company well-known as American distributors of modern domestic products, evolving from Russell Wright accessories. They sought out companies and designers worldwide and imported or commissioned decorative objects for US consumption. This piece was quite possibly made by Bitossi (given its color combination). We are huge fans of Raymor's slogan: "MODERN in the TRADITION of GOOD TASTE"! "
