BERT HARVEY FOR FAULKNER BRONZE CO.
ARTS & CRAFTS CIRCULAR COPPER WALL CHARGER, CIRCA 1900
repoussé decorated with a peacock enclosed within a band of fruiting branches
Notes: Note: An example of this repousse copper plaque or charger is illustrated on pages 14 & 15 of ''A. Edward Jones, Metalcraftsman'', published by Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery in 1980. It was designed c.1900 by Bert Harvey for Birmingham metalworkers Faulkner Bronze, and it appears on an old photograph of their exhibition stand. On Faulkner''s retirement in 1904, the firm was reconstituted as Jesson, Birkett & Co. Ltd. who continued to produce the Faulkner products, and a number of these were then taken over by A. E. Jones, who worked closely with Jesson, Birkett. Examples of this plaque are now rare. It is not known whether this one was made by Faulkners, by Jesson, Birkett, or by A .E. Jones.
