Offered for auction is a magnificent mid-century modern Royal Hickman fish platter tray. Bruce Fox. Circa mid-1940's.

Hallmarked - Royal Hickman, Bruce Fox, RH3. The tail fin is also metal stamped as shown in photo 6. Highly detailed and generously sized with a recessed center, gracefully curved outer edges and a footed base. An exquisite metalware piece strictly for display, for serving your guests, or for use as a spectacular centerpiece. In very nice vintage condition with light surface wear consistent with age. Measurements: 13" x 9". A rare find and an impressive mid-century modern Hickman collectible that offers a superb presentation for any setting.

Vintage Royal Hickman collectibles are becoming very highly collectible because these pieces have not been made under the Hickman name since the 1950's . This sculpted metal fish design is indicative of Hickman and is perfect for a tropical decor or collector.

Royal Hickman designed silver, pottery, glass, aluminum, furniture, lamps and other items for Haeger Potteries. First as a metal sculptor and potter in California, then on to Illinois, Hickman worked for Haeger from 1938 to 1944 (and again from the 1950's - 1969), but continued to contribute additional designs to the firm during the 1950s on a freelance basis.

He operated studio art potteries, in Tennessee and Florida in the 40's and 50's. Hickman also designed crystal animal figurines for the Heisey Glass Company. The last years of his life he lived in Guadalajara, Mexico, and continued designing for Royal Haeger.
