This stuff should be offered at Sotheby's or Christie's... This set is the epitome of The Arts & Crafts Movement. The Arts and Crafts Movement began in 1910, as a quest for authentic design and traditional craftsmanship. Reacting to the styles that had developed out of machine-production, artists like Otto Heintz would develop one of the most excellent examples of the movements aesthetic.He was granted three patents. By 1906, he changed the name to Heintz Art Metal Shop, and shifted to bronze as the base material and sterling silver as ornamentation. Photos, as they are MOST of the description...
