A true mid century, exceptionally beautiful, large and finely detailed horse sculpture with perfectly aged patinated verdigris to bronzed metalware mounted on the original metal base with foil label at underside signed Frederick Cooper, Chicago. Measures 14" tall and 10" long x 5 1/2" wide. Provenance: Charleston, SC private collection. In 1923, at the height of the roaring 20's, Frederick Cooper, a Chicago artist, established a studio to create beautiful sculpture and watercolor paintings. He became interested by the then still-new concept of table lamps. Using his sculpture expertise, he started mixing media like brass, glass and fabric to create lamps and sculpture that reflected the innovation in American architecture at the time - Mid Century Modernism. Frederick Cooper was an artist who created distinctive, architecturally-inspired lamps by mixing brass, fabric, glass and wood. His designs were embraced and his business flourished in Chicago where his factory remained for more than 35 years at 2545 West Diversey. The company name was proudly featured on the building’s clock tower and the identifying phrase "Lamps of Elegance" became a well-known sight to many Chicagoans as they passed by the factory while driving down the Kennedy Expressway. While the lamps are still being sold today, the rising costs of labor and the opportunities for overseas manufacturing eventually caused the closing of the Cooper Lamp Factory in 2005. Wt. 8 pds 12 oz
