Early 1900s Belgian Cast Brass Cigarette & Matches Holder Set

This wonderful smoking set marked Made in Belgium is well cast from heavy brass or bronze with decoration in bas relief. The urn shaped cigarette holder has a crowned man's head, the identity of whom I don't know, on two sides and leaf/branch patterns over the body and foot. The handles terminate in sunflowers. The match box holder has swags and foliage against a stippled background. Details are crisp and everything is hand finished.

They are rather heavy- 1 lb 11 oz total. The cigarette holder is 4" (10.2 cm) tall. The matches holder is 5" (12.7 cm) tall. The rim of the cigarette cup is inscribed Made-in-Belgium. The bottom of both holders is inscribed D.I. and some numbers/letters. The foot is attached with a flat head screw.

Really a terrific set and in excellent condition.
