In the 1930s Wright created a series of whimsical animals that were both decorative and functional. These abstract and stylized figures became bookends, corkscrews, fireplace andirons, candlesticks, paperweights, bottle stoppers, ashtray/candy dish, door stop and even a desk set. The figures were figuratively animated, characterized, and endeared by the names he gave them.
