Copper Banner – “A world of strife shut out, and a world of love shut in”


“A world of strife shut out and a world of love shut in.”

On one of five fireplace hoods Gustav Stickley created for the Log House in 1911, this verse from poet Dora Greenwell — executed in repousse on the central panel of the primary bedroom hood — shows a sweet and sentimental side of Stickley often hidden in his writings. It stands as a reminder of the value of the home and importance of family life to the Arts and Crafts movement.

Our exclusive collaboration with Cobre, this 11.5 x 19.5″ banner in reclaimed copper is a custom-made, hand-hammered replica of the original primary bedroom fireplace hood panel. It comes unframed, with copper hanging hooks on the back, or framed in a custom quartersawn white oak frame by Dard Hunter Studios.

Cobre produces beautifully crafted, hand-hammered copper accents, sustainably produced with reclaimed copper and fairly traded since 1994.

Run by Dard Hunter III, the grandson of Arts and Crafts designer and artist William Joseph “Dard” Hunter, Dard Hunter Studios in Chillicothe, Ohio uses only the finest materials to create pieces that stand the test of time. This custom frame is quartersawn white oak, with mitered corners. The Signature Finish is a four-step process, the final of which is a hand-rubbed wax, just like was found on Stickley furniture. This gives the frame the patina of an heirloom that will withstand sunlight and wear and provide beauty and enjoyment for years to come.

Framed Dimensions: 14.25 x 22.25 inches
