A little History: Industrial engineer Russel Wright (1904–1976) created a line of ware for Iroquois China Company called Casual that was considered "Mid-Century Modern" in style and had a Round coupe shape. It was produced between 1947 and 1967 in an assortment of solid colors. The set had over forty pieces. The chosen Wright colors for the Casual line included cantaloupe, ice blue, pink sherbet, seafoam blue, brick red, sugar white, lemon yellow, avocado yellow, ripe apricot, charcoal, lettuce green, forest green, parsley green and chartreuse yellow green. You will notice that Turquoise/Aqua was not a usual color hence the value of turquoise pieces are much higher. The Casual line came with matching cookware such as Dutch ovens, covered skillets, saucepans and fry pans that were oven proof and complemented the tableware. About the only place you find very much of this is at Replacement Ltd. at much higher prices.
