Lot Essay

Established in 1895, the New York firm of Edward F. Caldwell was perhaps the leading American designer of lighting fixtures and decorative objects through the first quarter of the 20th century. Working from its foundry at 38 West 15th Street in New York, the company supplied fine quality products to a rich and illustrious client base, including Henry Clay Frick, J. Pierpont Morgan, Andrew Carnegie and Frederick W. Vanderbilt. In addition, Caldwell is known for providing much of the lighting fixtures for the White House in Washington D.C. After Caldwell's death in 1914, his business partner Victor E. von Lossberg continued the company, which was incorporated in 1915.
