Antique American Copper Flower Dish by Marie Zimmermann



An antique floriform shallow bowl or dish by American silver and metalsmith Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972). The Arts & Crafts era design dates circa 1915 to the period Zimmermann maintained her home and atelier at the National Arts Club at Gramercy Park in New York City. Several similar examples of Zimmermann's fluted floriform metalwork designs are illustrated on page 290 in The Jewelry and Metalwork of Marie Zimmermann, 2012. The blossom form copper bowl has eight flaring petals decorated with simple fluting. Very good condition with some darkened areas of patina and minor scratches in keeping with age and use, measuring 7.88 in. diameter. Fully marked underfoot: MARIE ZIMMERMANN MAKER around her MZ artist's cipher over form number 21. Marie Zimmermann's creative and innovative designs for home and garden accessories were influenced by her life-long interests in historical design and the natural world. Period journalists referred to her as "Master of a dozen crafts ... perhaps the most versatile artist in this country" and "The last of the great metal craftsmen … the modern Benvenuto Cellini." Zimmermann studied at the Pratt Institute and the Art Students' League in New York before joining the National Arts Club. Her work was exhibited widely and today, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York holds the largest collection of Zimmermann's work, acquiring their first example at the peak of her career in 1922.
