Michael Lax was a popular industrial designer, whose designs for Copco cast iron enamelware, in the 1960s, transcend well into the 21st century. This lovely frying pan, in vintage mint condition, is a classic example. He graduated from the New York School of Music and Art in 1947 and in 1951 from Alfred University. Lax's designs were also made by Dansk, Rosenthal, Salton, Dunbar Glass and Metaal. Mr. Lax was born November 8, 1929 and passed away May 28, 1998.
