Eugene Schoen is Included in American Art Deco Furniture by Ric Emmett
Eugene Schoen (1880 - 1957) was one of American Art Deco's top design names. The following is an excerpt from Ric Emmett's new book, American Art Deco Furniture: " Eugene Schoen (1880-1957) was born in New York City. He attended Colum¬bia University, graduating in 1901 with a degree in architecture. The Paris Exposition of 1925 inspired him to open an interior decorating business specializing in the new modern movement. He designed furniture, rugs, and occasional items for his cli¬ents. His work was exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s two exhibits of industrial design. Schoen had a wealthy clientele and his combination of the best of New York, Paris, and Vienna with the quality of craftsmanship of his furniture, mostly executed by Schmieg, Hungate, and Kotzian, brought him ample commissions through the depression. He maintained his exclusivity by selling through other decorators or to his own clients."

Art Deco,Soda Siphon,Bel Geddes
Who Designed The Norman Bel Geddes Soda Syphon?
The "Norman Bel Geddes" Soda Syphon is in the collection of many United States museums, always with the attribution "Norman Bel Geddes". It has been sold by all major auction houses...also with an attribution to Bel Geddes. The reason for this, is the inscription on the base "Designer - Norman Bel Geddes". The raised inscription also reads "Walter Kidde Sales Co. Inc., Bloomfield, N.J.". However, a search of the U.S. Design Patents shows the inventor of design Patent 112,535 was Worthern Paxton (1905-1977) and the patent was assigned to the Walter Kidde Sales Company, Bloomfield N.J. The patent was filed on May 18, 1938 and granted on December 13, 1938. Paxton was a member of Bel Geddes firm but a relative unknown while Bel Geddes was a super star from his work in the theatre. He was also the designer of the popular Worlds Fair Exhibit, General Motors futurama, which was probably the year the soda siphon was introduced. So... the markting decision to put Bel Geddes name on the siphon probably should have said "from the firm of Norman Gel Geddes".

Kem Weber American Art Deco Arm Chair for Mueller Furniture Co.
This American art deco arm chair was designed in 1936 by Karl Emmanuel Martin (KEM) Weber (1889 - 1963). In 1935 Weber could not find a manufacturer for his “Airline Chair”. The several hundred he sold to Disney Studios were made by local cabinet makers. In 1936 he sold the concept (A wood chair that had no screws nails or bolts and could be shipped “flat”) to the Mueller Furniture Company of Grand Rapids, Michigan who manufactured this chair. The chair is 33 1/2” high 31” deep and 22” wide. It is in excellent condition and bears the Mueller Furniture Company tag.
