Robert Riddle Jarvie (1865 to 1941) of Chicago was the single most important American Arts & Crafts metalsmith. He started his career at the turn of the century making copper and bronze candlesticks that have become iconic to the Arts & Crafts movement. About 1910 he became a founding member of the Cliff Dweller's Club, a group of artistically minded Chicagoans.
Jarvie produced a range of metalwork, some with elaborate applied monograms or inscriptions. Both the design and execution of his copper objects are at the top of the scale.
Robert Jarvie was of Scottish descent. The easy familiarity between the decoration on this vase and that of designs by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in Glasgow is a wonderful example of the collaborative nature of the world-wide Arts & Crafts movement which can also be seen in designs from the Secessionist movement in Vienna.
Gustav Stickley said about Jarvie's designs that one could have nothing unattractive or tawdry near them, they were that perfect in design.
