Small Tumbler (doubled as sugar bowl)
Strange Pinched Lid (unsure if Wright design) # #
Large Tumbler  # 

Strange Dip - a - Trays   

Dip-A-Tray * Unsure if this is a Wright Design, sold by Northern as a go-with, I have found mostly in "end of day" confetti's unmarked. #  Very similiar to ashtrays once made in Brooklyn, NY

FACT: Suprisingly, most pieces in Residential are still easy to find, except certain colors such as Brown (Copper Penny) , Black (Black Velvet) and White Speckled (Granite White) will bring twice to three times the value due to rare color.  Refer to Color Chart.

Other Findings: Redesigned Cereal bowls & Round Plates sold by Northern are not Wright designs but were found in sets of Mottled After-Contract colors. Not shown here. 


  1. What is the color name of the divided vegetable dish that you have shown in the RW Residential Piece Guide? I couldn't find the color guide. I have the sugar bowl in this color and am looking for the creamer and other pieces. Just not sure of the color name.
