~ Dirk van Erp ~

~ please scroll down for more photos and information ~ SIZE:

Height - - 10" DESCRIPTION:

Rare and possibly unique Chinese wicker covered basket decorated with hand-wrought and riveted copper decoration by San Francisco, California coppersmith, Dirk van Erp.

Unsigned. Circa 1910 - 1920's.

This piece was found in San francisco several years ago and has a provenance of having been exhibited at the California Historical Design exhibition, "Bay Area Copper 1900 - 1950 - Dirk van Erp & His Influence". This piece is pictured in the extensive catalog for the exhibition on page 37 (Fig. 95 - Chinese wicker sewing basket with Dirk van Erp hammered copper 'warty' design on lid, unsigned. 10"). There are photos of the 117 page catalog below and it will be included with this piece as a form of provenance. The exhibition catalog is very informative and copies are sold for $40.00 on .

This basket is decorated with elegant hand-hammered 'warty' copper dimensional scroll-like tendrils extending from a central raised medallion. All are accented and held in place on the basket cover by cone-shaped decorative rivets. The copper has it's original chocolate brown patina and the basket top has remnants of a painted surface.

The interior of the basket's cover is lined with silk that has been attached to an old cardboard sign from Zinke's shoe Repair of San Francisco. The sign dates from the 1920's judging from the addresses and phone numbers for the repair shops. The basket itself is a Chinese export basket, made in China and imported into the United States during the period and used by Dirk van Erp to decorate and sell. AGE: Circa 1910 - 1920's

CONDITION:

Good condition, as shown in the photos and with the following noted: Light wear to the wicker basket. Fine original, untouched and hardly-worn patina to the copper. Remnants of paint to the lid of the basket (looks like it may have been painted dark gold over dark green originally). The bottom of the basket was never painted or decorated. Interior in good condition with silk-lined top easily removed (see photos). Very fine overall.

Exhibition catalog shown in the photos will be included and is in virtually mint condition.

HISTORY:

Dirk van Erp made many wicker basket accessories for the home in his San Francisco workshop. Most often seen are the basketry and copper fireplace wood holders and log baskets, both which are often hammered in the warty style and are never signed. This sewing basket is not a form often seen.

Zinke's was listed in San Francisco directories as a shoe repair business at both 977 Market St. and 152 Powell St. as late as 1928. After that time the 977 Market St. address was not advertised and probably had closed although some of the other locations were in existence until the 1940's. ~ please click on image for high definition photos ~
