The completer set is in original bags. Collection is in original Reed & Barton contemporary designed by Richard Meier for Swid Powell. Very minor marks on some of the pieces due to age where the pieces were stacked in the box touching each other. We only noticed them when we went over every piece for photography. About Swid Powell and Richard Meier.
Well known for its promotion of fashionable ceramics, silverware, and glass by leading international, generally Postmodernist, architectdesigners the New Yorkbased Swid Powell company was founded by Nan Swid and Addie Powell, both of whom had a background in contemporary furniture. They had worked for Knoll International, a firm well known for its production of Modernist classics, Swid as a director of product development, Powell as vicepresident of sales. Amongst the nine architects involved in preliminary discussions were former Modernist Philip Johnson, Stanley Tigerman, and Richard Meier, all of whom were enthusiastic about designing for a wider public than those able to commission buildings by fashionable designers.
In 1984 the first Swid Powell collection of porcelain dinnerware, silverware, and glass was launched, proving highly commercial in designconscious retail outlets. 1 tarnish resistant storage case by Reed & Barton.
