About

Two impressive silver plated candlesticks designed by the postmodernist architect Robert A. M. Stern (b. 1939) for Swid Powell. The columnar designs reflect Stern's interest in classical modernism.

Founded in 1982 by Nan Swid and Addie Powell, Swid Powell was known for it's promotion of high quality housewares designed by the leading architects of the time. It was the first company to create a significant collection of architect-designed decorative objects. It ceased production in the 1990s but their innovative, progressive design perspective continues today. The "Century" (the fluted candlestick) is in the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art. Dimensions: 11 7/8 in x 1 7/8 (square base.) 6 1/4 in x 3 1/2 (diameter of base.)
