An antique, fluted flower-form shallow bowl from the Arts and Crafts period by noted American metalsmith Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972). The floral dish comes directly from Zimmermann's estate and dates circa 1915.
The blossom-form design in copper has eight flaring petals with pointed tips and visible hammer marks overall. The bowl is the ideal size for a console or side table, but the form suggests it could be used as an underplate for flowerpot or house plant.
Very good condition with a few shallow scratches in keeping with age and use, measuring 7.75 in. diameter. Fully marked underfoot: MARIE ZIMMERMANN MAKER around her MZ artist's cipher.
Examples of Zimmermann's fluted floriform designs are illustrated on page 290 in The Jewelry and Metalwork of Marie Zimmermann, 2011.
Marie Zimmermann's creative and innovative designs for jewelry, funerary monuments, and ornamental accessories for home and garden were informed by life-long interests in historical design and the natural world. Period journalists referred to her as "master of a dozen crafts ... perhaps the most versatile artist in this country" and "the last of the great metal craftsmen … the modern Benvenuto Cellini." Zimmermann studied at the Pratt Institute and the Art Students' League in New York before joining the National Arts Club. Her work was exhibited widely and today, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City holds the largest collection of her objects, acquiring their first example in 1922.
Provenance: The Estate of Marie Zimmermann.
