This gorgeous three piece set has a perpetual calendar, letter holder, and inkwell. Since we don’t need inkwells any longer you could remove the glass and put paperclips in the inkwell. The bronze has a nice brown patina to it. Each piece has been accented by a sterling silver flower on a stem. The glass insert has a repair to the lip but it is a real find even to have one. All the bronze is in good condition and the set looks great together. This would look wonderful on your desk at home or in the office!
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.
