Lot 4139

Details: 7Pcs This lot consists of 4 antique hammered copper and metal ashtrays, two copper and brass metal candlesticks, and an antique Diamond Match Co. vest case.

The ashtrays bear the makers mark of the Roycroft arts and crafts community that operated in Aurora, New York at the turn of the century. This logo was in use from approximately 1906-1938. (roycroftcampuscorporation.com). The smallest one is flat with dips for cigarettes and measures 4.2" in diameter. The largest has cigarette rests fixed to the top and measures 8.5" in diameter and 1.5" deep. The other two are bowl shaped, one of which has a rest fixed to the top, and measure 3.5" and 6" in diameter.

The candlesticks feature delicately hammered surfaces. The column is brass rather than copper colored, and there is a twisted copper edge on the knop that lends the pair an unusual touch of craftsmanship.

The matchbox is of pressed brass metal and bears a makers imprint that reads "THE DIAMOND MATCH CO." Inside the snapshut lid is pasted a clipping that reads "THE MODEL Distributes Good Clothes CORTLAND N.Y." It has a ribbed striker on the front of the box. Measures 1.25" x 1.75".
