Lot Essay

The New York firm established in 1895 by 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, the company supplied fine quality products to rich and exclusive clients with such illustrious names as Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick, J. Pierpont Morgan and Frederick W. Vanderbilt. Caldwell also received important public commissions including the production of much of the lighting fixtures for the White House in Washington D.C. The firm was incorporated in 1915 and the addition of the 'Inc.' at this time aids in dating pieces.
