Art Deco Masterpieces of Rose Iron Works

September 28, 2021

Join the Art Deco Society of New York for a special virtual visit to explore the remarkable Art Deco creations of Rose Iron Works and its history. The virtual program will be led by third generation President, Bob Rose.

Rose will discuss the fascinating family history and celebrated accomplishments of Rose Iron Works, until recently, one of the best kept secrets of the Art Deco era. Discover the magnificent Art Deco creations from the 1930s, which have long been the centerpieces of important Deco collections and exhibitions. This visually stunning program is a behind the scenes glimpse into Rose studio’s noteworthy role in the design and production of famed decorative Deco metalwork.

The presentation will include anecdotal gems related to the celebrated Art Deco pieces that were loaned to the recent blockbuster exhibition, The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s––including the iconic 1930 “Muse with Violin Screen”; seldom seen drawings created by Paul Feher—Rose Iron Work’s resident artist in the 1930s; and a tour of Rose Iron Work’s headquarters, home to several hundred examples of the firm’s designs.

Bob Rose is the current and third family generation president of Rose Iron Works, an acclaimed leader in high-end decorative and Deco metalwork. The Northeast Ohio blacksmith studio, founded in 1904 has played a significant role in the design and production of many key metalwork items. It is one of Rose’s passions to teach about his family’s contribution to design and craftsmanship during the Deco heyday.
