"Music and Wine" E F Caldwell Bronze Bowl Greek & Renaissance Motifs

$ 3,900
  • Description
    Made by Edward F. Caldwell & Company of New York, America's most distinguished and lauded maker of fine lighting fixtures and metal decorative pieces in the early 20th century, this lidded bowl of cast and repoussé bronze depicts a series of winemaking scenes on the lid and a frieze of Renaissance angels playing lute and pipes on the bowl below. This piece is rare, and rarer still is the fineness of casting and enameling seen here. The Caldwell company was founded by E. F. Caldwell with Victor von Lossberg in 1895, and before long the company was collaborating with the likes of Stanford White and other prominent architects, supplying lighting and architectural details for a veritable "who's who" of prestigious building projects. Among them: the University Club, Andrew Carnegie mansion (now the Cooper Hewitt museum), Flatiron Building, St. Patrick's Cathedral, J.P. Morgan mansion and the Belnord Apartments (now featured in the television series, "Only Murders in the Building") in New York City and the White House in Washington, D.C. In the Art Deco era, Caldwell supplied decorative elements for the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Radio City Music Hall.
