Text from J. Rudoe, 'Decorative Arts 1850-1950', revised ed. 1994, no. 407:
From 1907, Paul worked in Berlin, as director of the school attached to the Berlin Kunstgewerbe museum, which was combined in 1924 with the Academische Hochschule für Bildende Kunste to become the Vereinigte Staatschule für Freie und Angewandte Kunst, with Paul as its director until his resignation in 1933. He continued to work with the Deutsche Werkstätten; a candlestick of this design appears on the sideboard of a dining room executed by the Deutsche Werkstätten in 1931 (see Munich 1992, Stadttmuseum Munich, 'Bruno Paul: Deutsche Raumkunst und Architektur zwischen Jugendstil und Moderne'', exhibition catalogue. no. 202). This modernist candlestick is characteristic of Berlin metalwork of c. 1930 and is close to the work of Albert Reimann (see 1989,1-6,1; Rudoe 1994, cat. 254).
