Measuring 6 1/8" x 4 1/8" x 2 1/4", this gilded bronze humidor is richly decorated with figures, masks, foliate and architectural designs.

The figures all likely represent people from various cultures, some appearing Asian, European, and possibly Meso-American.

Of gilt bronze, this fine snuff box is likely a master or table snuff box, as its dimensions are larger than one usually carried in a pocket.

The scene on top depicts a man seated in a chair, surrounded by others, including a man in Chinese clothing. It appears that the man in the chair has his arm over a keg, and seems to be a bit tipsy...

Of rare form, this bronze inkwell depicts an armadillo, standing upon a rectangular bronze base of naturalized foliate designs. The figure is mounted to the base with hand made screws and square nuts, all original. The hinged back opens to the interior, which once held two ink bottles which would have been mounted in a metal insert. The armadillo measures just slightly under 7" from nose to tail, is 3 1/2" high, and the base measures 5" by 2 3/4"...

Measuring just over 16" high, this hot water urn is Sheffield plate, or silver over copper, with ebony finial and spigot handle, and the legs and spigot are brass. With beautiful looped handles and tapered fluted legs on paw feet, this urn is classic in form and design. Repousse floral garlands surround the urn and the base is quatrefoil in shape over ball feet. With loss to the silver and some spots of tarnish, it shows signs of wear, but is all original and intact...
