The Metalwork of Marie Zimmermann at Q Antiques and Design

Q Antiques and Design offers an extraordinary collection of early-20th-century 

sterling silver & art metal designs by Marie Zimmermann! 

Q Antiques and Design represents the Estate of Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972), a talented American metalsmith, jeweler, and designer working in New York City during the opening decades of the 20th century. Journalists referred to Zimmermann as "Master of a dozen crafts … perhaps the most versatile artist in this country" and called her "the last of the great metal craftsmen … the modern Benvenuto Cellini." Zimmermann's creative and innovative designs were eclectic, experimental, and guided by personal interests in historical design and the natural world.
