Make an offer and own this great lot! Four Bronze/Brass Lighting Sconces possibly from the firm of E. F. Caldwell & Co., New York. Back Plates are hand painted depicting the arts and sciences: History, Geography, Math and Music. These may have hung in a private school. Original Hubbell sockets so these were clearly high end. Enlarge images and see the extreme detail of these wall lights! 10" high x 4" wide back plate. I will be offering the most amazing collection of antique lighting from a major collection over the next year. The pieces are mostly from the E. F. Caldwell Company of New York City and cover production from 1895 - 1945. These pieces are not cheaply made like the modern copies. Each piece comes with a unique story and can be tracked back, in most cases, to the original client. When possible an original image of the piece will be supplied. Additionally, the New York Public Library holds the customer archives and they can be searched to determine for whom the piece was created. Caldwell sold to only the wealthiest of customers and pieces from the firm are usually bespoke, created just for Rockefeller, Jay Gould, Carnegie, Morgan and a who's-who of the wealthiest men and women in the United States. When you purchase one a piece from the E. F. Caldwell Company, you are truly creating a link between the Gilded Age and today. You will not find pieces like this in a big box store. They are costly for reason: they add value to every setting whether it be the White House, Saint Patrick's Cathedral or your home! I have been contacted a few times by buyers who question whether all pieces from the Edward F. Caldwell Co. are always marked with the "C" in the diamond mark. The short answer is "No". Caldwell did sign most pieces but there seemed to be no steadfast rule that each piece needed to be signed. Adding to the confusion is the fact that the signature often appeared stamped into a fiber board backing that was attached to many sconces with two small set screws. The backs were often lost over the years and, with them, the signature. For those interested in authenticating production from the Caldwell Co., it is advisable to turn to the excellent on-line photographic archives supplied by the Smithsonian Museum branch in Manhattan. The archives provide proof positive regarding the production of most Caldwell pieces and allow the owner to date the pieces and, on occasion, discover for whom the lighting piece was created.FREE shipping.
