I have been collecting Roycroft since my early flea-marked days. Particularly Roycroft bookends, of which I have 10 pairs by now. i do not go for the kind of impeccable patina that investors seek. Mine are working bookends. These have been identified by model from a 1928 catalog

Pic. 1: 301
Pic. 2: 309
Pic. 3: 320
Pic. 4: 334

I looked all over categories and did not find either metal or bookends I did find Arts and Crafts and Roycroft. I also collect Roycroft limp binding books.

    THERE IS NO UNMARKED ROYCROFT METAL! EVERYTHING IS MARKED, FROM BOOKS TO BOOKENDS, FURNITURE, EVERYTHING!

    Funny, i just got up this morning to search for Roycroft marks and the care of Roycroft copper and bronze. I found three marks. The early mark is more elaborate than the later mark, and the Roycrofters mark incorporates 2 R's back to back. I'll post them.

    Great cleaning hint: to cut to a minimum or keep white metal from corrosion, try a good dose of Orange Glo! Also, use it to condition the patina in your copper and bronze pieces.
