Seller: fireman-12 (961) 100%, Location: High Springs, Florida, Ships to: US, Item: 272947772027 This copper ashtray for auction measures: 9" across, 1 1/2" high from base to top of ashtray, 4 1/4" high to the top of the match holder. This piece is clearly marked: Heintz Art Metal Shop Diamond with "HAMS" letters impressed along with " Sterling on Bronze" "Pat. AUG 27, 12" and the identifier number "2644 B". The design on the tray and match holder indicate the silver overlay process. The patina is original and will leave the decision of any type of cleaning or polishing to the new owner. I have tried to capture the color and highlights to the best of my limited photographic ability, but be aware it is much more handsome in person. . . . . . Heintz Art Heintz Art Metal Shop used the letters HAMS in a diamond as a mark. Otto Heintz (1875-1918) took over the Arts & Crafts Company in Buffalo, New York, in 1903. By 1906 it had become the Heintz Art Metal Shop. It remained in business until 1930. The company made ashtrays, bookends, boxes, bowls, desk sets, vases, trophies, and smoking sets of bronze with the silver decoration applied by a process patented in 1912. The best-known pieces are made of copper, brass, and bronze with silver. In 1902, Otto Heintz designed and manufactured copper items with colored enamel decorations under the name Art Crafts Shop. Some pieces had a colored patina of green, tan, brown, or red. Similar pieces were made by Smith Metal Arts and were marked Silver Crest. Some pieces by both companies were unmarked. Type: Ashtrays, Primary Material: Bronze
