Viktor Schreckengost, 101;


A great designer whose name you may not know died at age 101. I'd never heard of him before, but I recognized many of his designs.

I thought this teapot was thrilling to see. Although I have to tell you, when I came back to check this post I thought it looked like a fancy toilet for squirrels.

The obituary linked to above contains more amazing images of his work.

And still more are here. Be sure to view all the pedal cars. Now these are nice small cars with better design than the smart car.

I like the Murray Comet and the Ranchstyle Constellation serving pieces.
