Viktor Schreckengost designed the foxhunt plates while working for Cowan Pottery in 1930. At the time, Cowan was creating custom work for interior designers, and one of them requested dishes that were decorated with different outdoor activities. Some of his other plates featured people swimming and playing tennis, golf, and polo.
