Erhard Sohne Brass Lighter Bowl Mid Century Puttis Monogram Marks Symbols
Beautifully made by Erhard and Sohne, absolutely stunning golden brass bowl and lighter. presumably the bowl acts as decorative ashtray or staging piece in vintage mid century 60's era. the mechanism in the lighter is quite unique noted on the image. they are made of brass, in golden shiny designed with puttis, cherubs and flowers. by looking at them, in excellent aged condition, few water marks or climate marks.. the lighter has not been practiced. both are marked in etch with monograms, symbols. lighter is 4" h. approximate dimensions, 2.5" diam, side button to press for activation. bowl is 2" H. x 3.5" D. The cupids are so cute and uniquely decorated. bases are covered in felt to avoid scratch surface.
