Bronze Sunburst Semi-Flush Fixture by E.F. Caldwell

Bronze six-light sunburst semi-flush by Edward Caldwell, circa 1920s.

In 1902, with invitations sent for the first State Dinner in the newly restored State Dining Room, President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned Edward Caldwell to design lights worthy of the White House.

As theater-goers took their seats in Radio City Music Hall, they were ushered along by the twinkling Art Deco lights of Caldwell's later career.

This round semi-flush mount fixture dates from the height of Caldwell's popularity, and carries with it the starry elegance of his stylistic influence.
