Art Deco Compote with Nude Male Caryatids, Oscar Bach Bronze with Lustre Glass

About

Stunning in design and execution, this large Art Deco compote is composed of a bronze base featuring a group of nude male caryatids supporting a gorgeous, gold-hued glass compote made by Lustre Glass. Oscar Bach used the nude male caryatid motif in multiple ways over the course of his career, in table lamps, sculptural pieces and in his architectural work, such as the Department of Health Building in lower Manhattan. The Lustre Glass Company was founded by Conrad Valshing and Paul Frank, who were related to several glass makers who had worked at Tiffany Studios and founded Quezal Glass, earlier, in 1901. Oscar Bach was, along with Samuel Yellin, one of America's premier metalworkers in the 1920s and 1930s. He crafted enormous metal sculptures designed by Hildreth Meière for Radio City Music Hall, as well as countless sculptures, lighting fixtures and furniture for wealthy homeowners and institutions across America.
