OSCAR BACH Lots 192-246 feature luxury metalware by Oscar Bruno Bach (German/American,1884-1957) selected from the collection of Pamela K. and William A. Royall, Jr. and shown with furnishings in the style of Heywood Wakefield form the Royall's Virginia home. Beginning with the purchase of a bronze bird and an enameled coffer at a New York City flea market one Saturday morning, the Royall collection of work from the Oscar B. Bach Studios grew to approximately 200 objects ranging from small domestic wares to significant furnishings and architectural elements, all fabricated between 1920 and 1938. Bach was a master metalsmith, technically adept, stylistically diverse and commercially successful. The Royalls were his devoted champions as well as significant collectors of his work. They advanced his artistic reputation through their commitment to scholarly research (shared online at oscarbach.org) and outreach to institutions throughout North America. These efforts served to identify, document, interpret, and archive Bach's extraordinary catalogue of domestic objects and grand commissions, which include the lobby panel for the Empire State Building and monumental plaques for Radio City Music Hall, created in collaboration with Hildreth Meiere
