An elegant Arts and Crafts period sterling silver vase by Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972), a noted American metalsmith, jeweler and designer active during the opening decades of the 20th century. The vase comes from the artist's estate and dates to the 1920s while Zimmermann had a workshop and showroom at the National Arts Club at Gramercy Park in New York.  

In addition to this flaring example resting on a ring foot in sterling silver, Zimmermann produced the form in copper and again in patinated copper, illustrated in patinated copper in the jewelry and metalwork of Marie Zimmermann on page 337, fig. 10.22. The vessel is substantial, weighing 15.7 oz / 446 g measuring 5.88 in height x 5.75 in. diameter (at rim), marked MARIE ZIMMERMANN MAKER around Zimmermann's MZ artist's cipher / STERLING on base. Good condition with shallow surface scratches, some tarnish and spots that appear to be the remains of an old lacquer surface treatment. 

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City holds the largest collection of Marie Zimmermann's designs, making their first acquisition in 1922. Examples of Zimmermann's designs in metalwork and jewelry design are also in the permanent collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Wolfsonian-Florida International University and the Columbus Museum of Art. 

Provenance: The Estate of Marie Zimmermann.
