Box 1-3

Viktor Schreckengost's scattered papers largely concern his designs for dinnerware for the American Limoges China Company between 1933 and 1947. His complimentary designs across multiple production companies is evident through letters included here. Also found are letters for permissions to use illustrations of Schreckengost's work from the Crockery and Glass Journal. Clippings are of advertisements of dinnerware in newspapers and magazines.
Small sketches and large renderings of dinnerware are found, some of which are labeled, notably Refridgerator Ware. There is one photograph of Viktor Schreckengost with Kate Smith and a piece of his dinnerware at the Cleveland department store Higbees in 1936. Other photographs are of dinnerware.
Three VHS videocasettes are from 1993 to 1995. One includes an interview with Viktor and his brother Don Schreckengost discussing their "early days" filmed at the Spread Eagle Tavern in Sebring, Ohio. A 1994 VHS concerns the history of Schreckengost's art. A third VHS contains a slide show.
