Shenango China Company — New Castle, Pennsylvania
In 1942 Hungarian-born artist Eva Zeisel was commissioned to create a design for Castleton China to be displayed in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The design, known as “Museum Service,” was an overwhelming success and was later produced for public sale. Based on this success Castleton China commissioned a host of other renowned artists, including George Braque, Salvador Dali, Andrew Wyeth, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Roberto Montenegro, and Thomas Hart Benton, to craft designs for its china.
