Wright's Oceana line took inspiration from the diverse forms of sea flora and fauna. Wright claimed the pieces to be art in wood "leaving behind the stereotyped geometrical cliches which constitute so much of our present day modern picture." This example is one of the rarest forms from the line. Signed with branded signature and paper label.
