We are offering here a magnificent Dirk van Erp Hand Planished Brass Desk Set. This set includes two round bowls or ashtrays, a Cigarette Box, and two matching Match Box Holders. I am also including a pair of copper Blotter Ends which are not marked. All of the van Erp pieces have the initials "LWM" in an Art Deco Style. They have a reddish tinge to the brass finish of the pieces. The two bowls are 6 1/4" across and stand1 1/4" high and have a 7/8" rim. The Cigarette Box is 10 1/8" long, 3 1/2" wide, and stands 1 1/2" high. it has a piano hinge across the back and is lined inside with wood. The Match Box Holders are 2 3/8" by 1 5/8" and 3/4" thick. The all have a wonderful patina and are in very good condition, except one letter has come off one of the match box holders. The letter is available to be re-soldered. The two bowls and the Cigarette Box have the Dirk van Erp Windmill mark. The copper blotter ends are not marked, and they are 19 1/2" by 2 5/8" in size. The monogram is a slightly different style, but they probably sat on the same desk with the other pieces. You don't find many of this fabulous artisans items come up for sale, so this is a good opportunity to collect some fabulous pieces.
