Set Roycroft Copper Hand Hammered Bookends ~ Arts & Crfts For Sale
Recent estate find is this lovely
pair of ROYCROFT BOOKENDS. These bookends are different than any I have seen
for sale or sold on . They are heavy (over 2 1/2 pound unpacked) and built so they can hold the larger
bound books. They measure 5 1/4" tall by 4" wide with a 4" by 3" by 1/4" thick
base. Because they were hand made one is a tiny bit taller than the other.
The copper after 100 years has developeda nice, dark
patina. You can see the early mark with the curled "R" on the backside. They
are in really nice condition fora centuryold! Some rubs and scratches to one
bookend which is to be expected butis mostly to the backside (see last
photo)which is not seen when displayed.
Elbert Hubbard ( 1856-1915)
was the founder of Roycroft in 1895 . Under his direction he started a copper
shop in 1906. He hired Karl Kipp in 1908 and the shop prospered under his
direction. Their first catalog was published in 1909. The catalog provided a
wide arrange of lamps, bookends, desk items and much more. The early mark
continued until Elbert and his wife's death on the S.S. Lusitania when Elberts
son Bert took over the company.
If you have been looking
for rare bookends then this is it! Or they are just as beautiful to display on
their own. Don't let this rare andearly Roycroft pass you
