Fourteen Designs for Furniture and Lighting Fixtures in Wrought Iron

Edgar Brandt French

Not on view

This group of fourteen drawings with designs for cast iron furniture were made by the Parisian firm of Edgar Brandt, known worldwide for its iconic pieces in wrought iron. The group includes presentation drawings and specification drawings for a range of different types of furniture, but predominantly focused on tables and lighting fixtures. Among the tables there are designs for freestanding tables, console tables and rolling bar carts. The lighting fixtures can be divided in chandeliers and wall sconces, some meant for candles, others for electrical light. Many of the drawings have inscriptions detailing measurements and/or scale, and for the majority a serial number is provided as well, which may allow for the identification of surviving pieces of furniture.
