German-born craftsman Oscar Bruno Bach was one of the most technically skilled and commercially successful figures in the field of decorative metalwork during the first half of the 20th century. His design and production ranged from small utilitarian designs for the home to grand-scale architectural elements. His style was as diverse as his use of metals and included Arts and Crafts, Gothic and Tudor Revival, Spanish Baroque, French Directoire, English Chippendale, and American Art Deco. (AskArt)
