collection of 13 vessels
six marked “Russel Wright Bauer”
including Manta Ray bowl, Pillow vase, centerpiece with candleholders, and mantlepiece bowl

The small, square orange vase has two small glaze misses at the lower edge. The large yellow pillow vase has burst glaze bubbles throughout. The large, gray triangular bowl has a burst bubble to the rim that has left a small, open void. All of these issues are related to the production techniques. No repairs or restoration found. Overall, excellent condition. Six have impressed Russel Wright marks on the bottom.
