Walter Von Nessen

Technical Resources
Industral Designer

Walter Von Nessen’s training, prestige and work in Germany during the early ‘20s, before emigrating to the United States in 1925 at the age of 35, was rooted in intricate manufacturing as well as furniture design techniques — invaluable groundwork for his own unique design concepts.

By 1930 critics, manufacturers and museum heads were beginning to refer to him as an industrial design trailblazer and champion of modern design.

It may seem strange that the A. H. Heisey & Co., Newark, OH., with all its “in-house” talent, would turn to an “outside” designer whose business was rutted in architectural and industrial design. However, it was the trend of the day for manufacturers of glassware to go outside the field in search for new designers.

With an established architect and design firm in New York City, Heisey’s first contact with Walter Von Nessen seems to have been late in 1934 when Rod Irwin went to New York to meet Mr. Von Nessen. They discussed the possibility of Walter designing some items for Heisey to display in a special exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum in November of 1943. Mr. Von Nessen’s association with Heisey continued over the next few years during which time he was to design several successful patterns. #1483 Stanhope, a pattern with a strong art deco flavor was named after Lady Stanhope, a wealthy English courtesan of the pre-Victorian ear, who owned the famous Stanhope Diamond. Another pattern designed by Mr. Nessen was Kohinoor.
