Here's an unusual find from the Arts and Crafts Movement in the early 1900s. This neat lidded copper bowl with a rooster finial and verdigris finish was produced by Carl Sorensen and bears his signature and CS mark on the bottom. Sorensen was well known in the Philadelphia, PA, area during the Arts and Crafts Movement producing beautiful items in copper and bronze. In later years, he worked for Louis Comfort Tiffany in the Tiffany Studios.
This piece is in wonderful aged condition, but could use some cleaning, especially in the interior. I will leave cleaning to the buyer. There is a sweet aroma when the box is opened from the previous owner's storage of potpourri. There are no dents.
The lidded bowl measures about 5" in diameter at the lid rim and stands about 7.5" tall to the top of the rooster's tail feathers. The lid fits snugly.
