The Collection of Dr. Martin Eidelberg

The Collection of Dr. Martin Eidelberg: Saturday, January 21st at 10AM (EST), 95 lots Rago?s is honored to present the collection of scholar and author Dr. Martin Eidelberg, featuring some of the finest examples of early 20th century American pottery we have ever offered including spectacular works by George Ohr, Grueby, Adelaide Robineau, University City, and Van Briggle. Rare works by Eva Zeisel, Marblehead, and William Hunt Diederich, as well as European ceramics by Gio Ponti, Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat, Auguste Delaherche, James Vibert, and Edward Colonna. David Rago, Partner + Co-Director 20th-21st C. Design Dept: ?Dr. Eidelberg not only taught us about the history and importance of objects and their makers, he also explored the relationship those objects had with each other, with us, and with society as a whole, and how that all defined the Arts & Crafts as a reform movement. Few besides him knew, in the early 1970s, the radical intention of a piece of Grueby pottery, or the paradigm-altering perspective offered by a ?new? interior of natural materials, cleansing sunlight, and hand-made objects. I am indebted to him for revealing a truth that is as relevant now as it was 45 years ago.?
