Table of Contents

As the founding of the Roycroft Art Community in New York State reaches its one hundredth anniversary this year, collector interest in the Arts & Crafts-style items that were made there have become stronger than ever before. Of particular interest are the beautiful and varied hammered copper ware the "Roycrofters" made.

This second volume provides nearly two hundred color photographs of copper vases, bookends, trays, and more-including many rarely-seen items. The history of the group and the evolution of its art metal are discussed, along with criteria for evaluating the quality of individual pieces. The different marks and patinas used by the company are also documented.

Of further interest is a discussion of the Tookay Shop and Avon Coppersmith, both spin-offs from the Roycroft community, which continued in a similar tradition. A price guide is also included.
