Circa: 1940 Country of Origin: United States Manufacturer: Laguna Craftsmen
This 8-3/4" diameter low bowl in hammered copper is exactly like those made by Craftsman Studios of Laguna Beach. This one however has a paper label taped to the bottom reading "Made In Laguna Beach California by Laguna Craftsmen, PO Box 10". Laguna Beach has had a reknown artist's colony since the early 1900s, and in fact Craftsman Studios moved there to be part of it. I'm not sure if this bowl is s Craftsman piece or not however.
The bowl appears to have been cleaned or polished in the not-too-distant past though it is recovering a patina. It appear that the lacquered finish was removed which should help it repatinate faster. It's 2 inches deep and in good condition, marked below the label with the stock number 115.
