The Frederic Weinberg Co.

Philadelphia based artist and industrial designer Frederic Weinberg produced and sold a wide variety of functional and decorative items under a company bearing his name. Though he is probably best known for his figural wire and fiberglass wall sculptures, he also produced retail fixtures, clocks, lamps and furniture for homes, institutions and businesses.

Frederic Weinberg Co. labels showing different addresses in Philadelphia.

The Etruscan style pieces below are often attributed to Weinberg or listed with the phrase "in the style of Weinberg". I am no expert, but from what I can decipher, I don't believe these were actually designed, made or sold by Weinberg; I found one with a label attached stating it was made in Greece (see below).
