About the artist:

Edgar Brandt (1880-1960) is considered the greatest exponent of Art Deco metal work. Brandt began working in Nancy, France in the Art Nouveau style, but later shifted his style to the more geometric and stylized forms of Art Deco. Brandt’s work was featured at the famous Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs de 1925 in Paris (this Exposition gave “Art Deco” it’s name).

As Brandt’s popularity grew he accepted more commissions to produce custom work for private houses and apartments. He opened a gallery in New York and another one at the Boulevard Malesherbes in Paris, created for embassies, hotels and liners.
