Designer Robert R. Jarvie American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 744

Robert R. Jarvie, whose early advertisements label him "the Candlestick Maker," created some of the most sophisticated metal candlesticks of the Arts and Crafts period, naming each design with a letter of the Greek alphabet. His light, organic forms in brass, copper, bronze, and silver were favorites of contemporaries such as Frank Lloyd Wright, who used a pair of Delta candlesticks in the Avery Coonley and Isabel Roberts homes.
