Marie Zimmermann Floriform Pair of Arts and Crafts Candlesticks

Ships From: Los Angeles, CA US

Description: A tall pair of Arts and Crafts floriform candlesticks by noted American metalworker, jeweler and designer, Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972). This heavily silvered Arts and Crafts design dates circa 1915 while Zimmermann maintained a workshop studio and showroom at the National Arts Club in New York City. The candlesticks come directly from the artist's estate and are in very good condition, each stamped M. Zimmermann/Maker over her MZ cipher underfoot. The domed and scalloped bases show hammer marks and the twisted tube stems support lobed and fluted collars with removable candle cup inserts. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City holds the largest collection of objects by Marie Zimmermann, acquiring their first example of her work in 1922. Examples of her designs in jewelry and metalwork are also in the permanent collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Wolfsonian-Florida International University, and the Columbus Museum of Art.

Condition Report: Both in very good condition with small spots of tarnish, oxidation, and edge wear related to age and use. Both removable candle inserts have a slightly darker matte surface which is likely the result of rhodium plating, a technique Zimmermann used to prevent tarnish. Although both fit perfectly into their respective slots, they are each just slightly raised in one spot.

Marie Zimmermann Gilt Lotus Art Deco Tazza

Ships From: Los Angeles, CA US

Description: An Art Deco-era gilded, fluted dish on a ring foot by Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972), a noted metalsmith, jeweler and designer working in New York City during the opening decades of the 20th century. The tazza comes from the artist's estate and dates to the 1920s while she maintained a workshop studio and showroom at the National Arts Club at Gramercy Park. This abstracted lotus blossom composed of eight petals with pointed tips illustrates Zimmermann's ability to interpret historical design sources for her clients as the form resembles designs from the Chinese T'ang Dynasty (581 - 618 CE). The substantial dish of bronze or copper is in good, original condition with a bright gold surface; fully marked underfoot: M. ZIMMERMANN / MAKER over her MZ cipher; measuring 9.5 in. Diameter. Zimmermann's creative and innovative designs for jewelry, funerary monuments, and ornamental accessories for home and garden were eclectic, experimental, and informed by her life-long interests in the 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 during her career and today, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City holds the largest collection of her objects, acquiring their first example in 1922.

Condition Report: Good, original condition with a bright gold surface; the underside has several spots around the foot where the base metal is just beginning to show through the gilding.

Description: A large and sculptural gilded inkwell from the Art Deco period in gilded copper with a contrasting coral and white stone finial by American metalsmith, designer and jeweler, Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972).

The inkwell is sculptural and functional with remnants of ink staining the removable insert. The body and lid are gilded inside and out with a rich, golden satin finish.

George Hurrell Signed LE Framed Photograph of Joan Crawford

Ships From: Los Angeles, CA US

Description: George Hurrell (1904–1992) took this portrait of Joan Crawford at her home in Brentwood in 1932 and printed it circa 1980 as part of his Portfolio III series. He signed the image “109/250” and “Hurrell/” in black ink. This large, custom framed and matted original black and white silver gelatin photograph is printed on double weight matte finish paper. Hurrell was the American celebrity photographer of the 20th century and his atmospheric work was synonymous with Hollywood glamour, sophistication and elegance. He photographed many movie stars of the 1930s-1940s and Crawford was one of his favorite subjects. According to Hurrell, "If I were a sculptor, I would be satisfied with just doing Joan Crawford all the time." (Hurrell's Hollywood Portraits, p. 143). The print is in good condition with wonderful tonality. Hurrell slightly smeared his signature after signing. The black painted wooden frame is new and the mat shows no sign of age. The sheet measures 20 in. W X 16 in. H; framed 26 in. W x 22 in. H x 1.5 in. D. Hurrell trained as a painter and photographer at the Chicago Art Institute and the nearby Academy of Fine Arts. During his career, he worked alongside other well-known photographers including Paul Outerbridge, Edward Steichen and Edward Weston. His relationship with studios including MGM, 20th century Fox and Warner Brothers, began in 1929 and continued for decades. In addition to his portraits of Joan Crawford, he photographed Humphrey Bogart, Douglas Fairbanks, Greta Garbo, Rita Hayworth and Dorothy Lamour, Vivian Leigh and Jane Russell. His decision to print his own negatives ensured that his sleek compositions retained their velvety tones. The end of the studio system during the 1950s led Hurrell to work for the J. Walter Thompson Agency to produce fashion campaigns for well-known magazines as well as commercials for Walt Disney. In the 1970s, Hurrell returned to Hollywood portraiture to photograph a new generation of stars. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) exhibited his work in 1965 and 1981 and the Smithsonian included him in a 1984 traveling exhibition on Hollywood portrait photographers. In Los Angeles, his prints appeared at the Municipal Art Museum (1976) and Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) (1987).

Large Marie Zimmermann American Arts and Crafts Centerpiece Bowl with Verdigris Patina

Ships From: Los Angeles, CA US

Description: A large double-handled and footed centerpiece bowl in heavy copper with an encrusted and abraded verdigris patina by Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972). The bowl comes directly from Zimmermann's estate, was published in her 2011 monograph, and dates to the early 1920s while this noted American metalsmith, designer and jeweler maintained a workshop studio and showroom at the National Arts Club at Gramercy Park in New York. Although created during the Arts and Crafts period, Zimmermann incorporated several stylistic influences into the creation of this sculptural piece. The form is reminiscent of a large-scale Scottish "quaich" drinking bowl but the deliberately encrusted and abraded verdigris patina contributes to the appearance of an excavated artifact from an ancient civilization. The large bowl is in very good condition, measuring 16 in. L (at handles) x 11 in. W x 6.5 in. H and is illustrated on page 118, fig. 3.51 in The Jewelry and Metalwork of Marie Zimmermann, 2011. Zimmermann produced this same quaich bowl form in sterling silver and had one of two known silver versions professionally photographed by 1926. A sterling silver example of this form and the commissioned photograph appear respectively on pages 114, fig. 3.45 and page 188, fig. 3.52. Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972) was an American metalsmith, jeweler, and designer working in New York City during the opening decades of the 20th century. She was by turns an outdoors woman, world traveler, daughter, sister, artist and employer; period journalists called her "…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."
