Silver Crest Bronze 2 Piece Smoking Set Arts Crafts - Silvercrest was founded by one of Heinz's employees, apparently. It was called the Smith Metal company, according to the internet.
Whatever, it is really a nice antique set of bronze. And, interesting.
This is a matching set and has the same ribbed edges.
Box measures 7 Â¼â€ x 3 Â¾â€. Ashtray measures about 7 Â¼â€ in diameter. Set weighs about 3 1/3 pounds, before being packed up. So, will go over 4 pounds packed.
This oblong box has a 2-compartment wood interior for cigarettes.
The ashtray is large and looks like it could accommodate cigars as well as cigarettes. It has a â€œwired topâ€. It is in 3 parts - see my pictures.
Both pieces are marked on bottom Silver Crest and Genuine Bronze. Box is marked 515-50. Ashtray is marked 404-150.
Condition is all original - has NOT been polished and has NO monograms.
**The box has a copper plaque attached on top (same color as the copper ribbed edges on both pieces) and is showing either wear or discoloration. Also, the box has some pitting.
The ashtray has a large cork knob. **There is a shallow dent on one side of edge of ashtray and should be easy to repair.
Interesting Note: There is still the original (I believe it is) price sticker on bottom of box stating $18.
