Michael Lax Hyalyn “Capri” for Raymor Salt and Pepper Shakers
A set of mid-century Hyalyn Capri salt and pepper shakers designed by the American industrial designer Michael Lax (1929-1999) for Raymor. The barrel shaped shakers each feature a white porcelain body with a perforated walnut top. Both are unmarked.
Michael Lax attended New York School of Music and Art, Alfred University, and studied Scandinavian modern design on a Fulbright Fellowship. Lax worked with Russel Wright and was widely known for designing many household products for Dansk and Lightolier, among others. The Lytegem lamp and enamel-coated tea kettle he designed are part of permanent Museum collections.
2.5" W x 4.25" H x 2.5" D (single shaker).
Some discoloration to glue. One of the shakers has some very small nicks/chips on the edge near the wood. The shaker with the cork stopper has something stuck inside of it that rattles when shaken (might be an old stopper).
