Seller: supersnyderwoman (3,830) 100%, Location: Miami, Florida, Ships to: US, CA, Item: 382962227080 The copper used for these stunning Roycroft bookends was hand hammered for texture and the leaf pattern was meticulously applied with Repoussé and chasing techniques. They are both lovely examples of the detailed hand craftsmanship that came from the Arts and Crafts, Stickley, Mission style period. The metal has a rich brown original patina with some sheen to it. The arch is further detailed with a curl at the top. The copper was bent and curled to form the stable bases. SIZE: Each measures approximately 3 ½” tall by 2 wide. CONDITION: This pair is quite vintage, probably made around the 1920’s based on the cross and orb mark (it seems to be the earlier sort of stubby mark but I'll let experts make their own judgement). The mark is only on one piece but they came from the same estate. It appears they may have had felt bottoms at one time that were replaced with the 4 stick-on rubber “feet” that were on them when I acquired them in the early 80’s. I have only had them on display in an enclosed cabinet since then but there are scuffs and teeny scratches here and there, consistent with age and previous use. They are still remarkable and beautiful Roycroft pieces to display or use as intended.
