Heintz Arts & Crafts Sterling Overlay on Bronze Mixed Metals Trophy Loving Cup

US$950

About

Early 20th century Arts & Crafts mixed metals trophy probably made by Heintz Art Metal Co. This beautiful bronze double handled loving cup has a gorgeous sterling silver overlay grape vine leaf design. The base, arms and peak of cup on the front as well as back are accented with stunning vines and leaves and in the center is a group of grapes. Rarely found in this ornate pattern especially without names engraved on it. Stamped on bottom RS 6523 PAT.APD.FOR as well as with a sticker from the retailer. This piece has the numbers that are affiliated with Heintz but not his shop mark it is probably one of his earlier pieces. Heintz information from Arts and Crafts Collector February 1, 2013: Starting in 1903, a few years before the Roycrofters produced their first copper letter openers, Otto Heintz took over the Art Crafts Shop in Buffalo, changed its name to the Heintz Art Metal Shop and began producing an extensive line of vases, bowls, desk accessories, picture frames, jewelry, bookends and a limited number of monumental table lamps. Just as Artis Van Briggle and Teco Pottery utilized molds, Otto Heintz turned to the lathe rather than the hammer to produce his unique line of metalware. And rather than copper, his craftsmen attached pieces of bronze to the lathe and ‘spun’ each form by pressing the thin bronze sheet against spinning forms with wooden mallets. Heintz Art Metal was also distinguished two other ways. First, they developed a variety of unique patinas, including Verde, a dark green finish favored by many Arts & Crafts collectors. Second, Heintz invented and patented a secret method of attaching decorative sterling silver overlay to each piece without the use of messy solder. The silver overlay is decidedly Arts & Crafts in the handcraftsmanship it required and the depiction of natural motifs, such as flowers, plants, leaves, birds and branches.
