"Leaping Stag Bowl," Rare Art Deco Bowl with Sculptural Relief by Oscar Bach



One of the most iconic, though rare, pieces ever made by Oscar Bach, this bowl features an iconic leaping stag in high Art Deco style, executed in a silvery aluminum finished in a subtly iridescent glaze. This bowl, and a series of rare chargers in the same series, were molded in an enormous hydraulic press by the Sterling Bronze company for Bach. The artist was, along with Samuel Yellin, one of America's premier metalworkers in the 1920s and 1930s. He crafted enormous metal sculptures designed by Hildreth Meière for Radio City Music Hall, as well as countless sculptures, lighting fixtures and furniture for wealthy homeowners and institutions across America. He also crafted a line of very fine tabletop decorative items, usually composed of bronze or silvered metal.
