Viktor Schreckengost, a pioneering industrial designer and ceramist who brought innovative mass-produced items to millions of American households starting in the 1930s, died Jan. 26 at the age of 101. Here he poses in his Cleveland Heights, Ohio, home in 2006. FOR THE RECORD An earlier version of this photo gallery included an image of a white teapot made in 1938 and sold at auction in June 2007 for $48,000. That teapot was designed not by Viktor Schreckengost but by his brother Paul.
