Oscar Bach gilt bronze cabinet with matching chair. The marble top cabinet features 3 doors in the front and a rear compartment concealed by a slide-up panel. It measures 25.5" wide, 12" deep, 41.25" high to the marble, and 47.25" high to the back splash. The chair measures 36" high, 16" wide, 14" deep and 18.75" high to the seat. Excellent original condition. Designer and craftsman Oscar Bruno Bach was born in Germany in 1884 and died in NY in 1957. He was one of the most technically skilled and commercially successful figures in the field of decorative metalwork during the first half of the 20th century. His design and production ranged from small and domestic to grand-scale architectural. His style was as diverse as his use of metals and included Arts & Crafts, Gothic, Renaissance, Spanish Baroque, Tudor Revival, and, on occasion, modern Art Deco. Thematically he was particularly fond of the zodiac, of lush scrolling grapevines, classical masks, mythological symbols and elements of the Italianate and Germanic grotesque. Oscar Bach's work can be found in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Minneapolis Museum of Art, The Wolfsonian, and Reynolda House. In 1911 Bach won the Grand Prix at the World's Exposition in Turin, Italy for a bed he designed for Kaiser Wilhelm II. 1911 was also the year that he moved to the United States to join his brother Max and establish a business in New York City. This piece measures 25.5 inches wide, 12 inches deep, 41.25 inches to top of marble and 47.25 to top of its back splash. The chairs measures 36 inches high, 16 inches wide, 14 inches deep and 18.75 inches to the top of its seat. Excellent original condition.
