In celebration of Viktor Schreckengost's 100th birthday, New-York Historical, along with 100 public venues around the country, will display the work of this acclaimed industrial designer. Working in a wide range of fields, from pottery to pedal cars, Schreckengost has created an enduring legacy in American design. This display will focus exclusively on Schreckengost's masterpiece, the Jazz Bowl of 1930. Designed on the request of Eleanor Roosevelt, the vibrant turquoise punch bowl evokes the energy and exuberance of Jazz Age New York City.
