Russel Wright Spun Aluminum Large Canape Ball Tray

Russel Wright started his design career in the 1930s, manufacturing spun aluminum table and decorative wares in a converted stable in New York City. The items he designed and produced rode the line between Art Deco and Modernism. Wright was one of the first Americans to embrace what was known at the time as "Art Moderne" and which was later called International Modern.

This is one of the large, center-handled servers, cataloged in Wright's literature as #428 "Large Canape Ball Tray". It's a large, spun aluminum tray with an aluminum loop handle with a cork sphere in the center. The idea was that hors d'oeuvres on toothpicks could be stuck into the cork ball for serving.

The piece is 13.75" in diameter and 8.5" tall.

Condition: there are scattered dark spots on the top and heavy wear to the bottom. Cork ball has a few toothpick holes in it.

Mark: stamped RUSSEL WRIGHT.

Item ID: 3413
