Item Description

A copper south african made De Klerk bed warmer.  South Africas last coppersmith.   Hallmarked De Klerk

Some history of De Klerk copperwork.  South Africa’s only coppersmith is not passing on his skills to anyone and is considering giving up the craft in the next five to 10 years.

“South Africans don’t appreciate crafts,” says 40-year-old Larry de Klerk, a fourth generation coppersmith operating out of the wood and iron garage attached to a house in Currey Street, Doornfontein, which was declared a national monument in 1990 (today a Provincial Heritage Site). He says he is the only coppersmith in the country.Dont hesitate to ask any questions.
