Antique Early 20thc Arts & Crafts Hammered Copper Vase-dirk Van Erp Quality:
Up for offers is this Antique Early 20thC Arts & Crafts Hammered Copper Vase. As soon as I saw this piece I knew that it was a high quality piece of studio made hammered copper. However, the mark on the bottom has me puzzled. I have not been able to find this mark anymore. The mark is very similar to the one that Gustav Stickley used but I do not believe that it is. The base is folded into the bottom and the neck tapers down into the body of the vase in a way that only a master coppersmith could do. The surface of this vase is finely hammered in a very even pattern and the vase has its original red patina. I know that Dirk Van Erp used patinas similar to this one. Overall this piece just has me completely puzzled on the maker. This piece stands 6 1/8" in height with a diameter of 3 1/4". This piece is in excellent condition with no dents, dings, breaks, or repairs. This Antique Early 20thC Arts & Crafts Hammered Copper Vase will make a great addition to your collection.
