Thence by descent.
Edgar Brandt (1880-1960) was a French artist-blacksmith who combined emerging technologies from the machine age with traditional forging methods. Alongside producing Art Deco buildings and monuments, Brandt also created object d’art.
Together with the famous glass manufacturer Daum Frères, Brandt created not only wrought-iron pieces including consoles, screens and elevator doors but also chandeliers and lamps following the Art Nouveau style. At only 29 years old, Brandt was hailed as the rising star of metalwork design by the influential "Art et Decoration" magazine.
When Brandt decided to participate in the famous Exposition International des Art Decoratifs in 1925, he became a major talking point and was commissioned to design several important buildings and artworks, including interiors for embassies, hotels and ocean liners. Brandt gradually shifted his style into Art Deco design, reflecting the new era. Following the successful opening of a gallery in New York, under the name Ferrobrandt, Brandt also opened an atelier in Paris. Widely considered the greatest exponent of Art Deco metal work, Brandt was awarded the title of Knight of the Legion of Honor and received the Medal of Honor for Applied Art by the Société des Artistes Français in 1939.
