Louis Vincent Aronson was an American inventor, industrialist and philanthropist who is best remembered as the inventor of Ronson lighters. When he was 24 years old, he sold the rights to a commercially valuable metal plating process. While retaining full use of his invention, young Aronson sold the patent rights for $5000 and used the proceeds to open his own company named the Art Metal Works. Before long the company was producing a variety of high quality lamps, book ends, statues and other decorative items, prized today for their detail in the collector marketplace.
Here we have a marvelous example of a 6 1/8 inch tall Egyptian Incense Burner dated 1924 which was more than likely produced in response to the intense interest surrounding the discovery of King Tut's tomb. This is the piece that meant to complete a collection of Egyptian memorabilia. Perfect Egyptian art deco piece that is correct for the year of manufacture - 1924. Perfect desk accessory to hold paper clips and the like.
Wonderful incense burner in that it is no chips, no cracks, no repairs but has minor wear. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
Authentic and appropriately signed LV Aronson 1924 on the bottom. All pictures are original and un-edited.
