Roycroft Copper - East Aurora, NY
The Roycroft Copper Shop created hammered copper crafts in East Aurora, NY from 1906 until the 1930's. The Roycroft orb mark is familiar to many and can help establish an age for the copper item. The American Beauty, buttress and cylinder hammered copper vases are some of the most prized arts & crafts copper pieces. The Aurora brown finish is the most popular but also came in the Old Brass finish as well. The master metal smiths who worked for Roycroft included Karl Kipp (Copper Shop Master) and William Jennings (hand tooler). Below the Roycroft section are other pieces made by Dirk Van Erp, the Jarvie Shop, Benedict Studios and Stickley Brothers.
