"Caryatids," Important, Rare Bronze by Oscar Bach


This bronze sculptural group, originally the base for a table lamp, was executed by the renowned workshops of Oscar Bach, America's foremost metal craftsman in the 1920s and 1930s. Bach, who immigrated to America from Germany, settled in New York City, and there he created a dizzying array of lamps, tables, candlesticks, decorative panels and other pieces that ornamented some of America's finest theaters, homes and public buildings, including Radio City Music Hall. The bronze is marked and retains its original openings for the lamp wiring.
