Here is a beautiful vintage smoking set from Craftsman Studios of Laguna Beach, California.
The set includes a lidded cigarette box, ashtray, and matchbook holder. Each piece is made from gorgeous, richly patinated copper.
Every piece in the set is finished with a lovely, broadly hammered finish while the matchbook holder and cigarette box feature a fantastic chased design in the center.
Craftsman Studios Company of Laguna Beach was founded during the height of the Arts and Crafts Movement, but would undergo a series of name changes over the years. By 1929, they had become Craftsman Inc.
Every piece in this set exhibits a "Craftsman Copper" hallmark, which features the company's traditional "anvil and hammer" logo as well as the words "Hand Made".
Each piece bears a production number. The number on the cigarette box is 502, the ashtray's number is 409, and finally, the number on the matchbox is 479.
The set exhibits a patina as well as some spots and darkening, but remains in good vintage condition overall.
This set is truly an exceptional example of the peerless style that characterized the Arts and Crafts Movement as well as Craftsman Studios designs.
