    Edward F. Caldwell & Co., of New York City, was the premier designer and manufacturer of electric light fixtures and decorative metalwork from the late 19th to the mid-20th centuries. Founded in 1895 by Edward F. Caldwell (1851-1914) and Victor F. von Lossberg (1853-1942), the firm's legacy of highly crafted creations includes custom made metal gates, lanterns, chandeliers, ceiling and wall fixtures, floor and table lamps, and other decorative objects that can be found today in many metropolitan area churches, public buildings, offices, clubs, and residences. A majority of these buildings were built in the early 20th century, a time of tremendous growth in construction and when many cities were being electrified for the first time.

Since 1903, Steuben Glass has been made by hand at Corning, New York factory and was one of Tiffany's biggest rivals. Steuben's unique glass is made from an outstanding optical formula. Steuben's state-of-the-art melting ensures glass that is exceptionally pure and free of even the tiniest visual imperfections. The skilled artisans worked around reheating ovens called glory holes, directed by a master "gaffer." Each gather of molten glass is carried from tank to glory hole, where it is formed "at the fire" with blowpipes, pontil rods, shears, calipers, and other tools little changed over centuries. Finished pieces are slowly cooled in annealing ovens, then cut, polished, and engraved by hand.

Founded by two former Tiffany employees, The Quezal Art Glass & Decorating Company of Brooklyn opened its doors in 1902, and for the next 22+ years produced a wide range of outstanding Vases and Lamp Shades. Quezal Art Glass pieces are known for the shimmer and luminosity displayed on both the inside and outside surfaces. The company name and its designs were inspired by the quetzal, a rare bird found in the tropical forests of Central America. Quezal Art Glass is known for its colorful, shimmering exteriors and its brilliant gold or metallic interiors. Itís exteriors are also colorfully decorated with nature-inspired motifs such as feathers, clovers, lilies and holly. The Quezal Art Glass and Decorating Company ceased production in 1924.
