The Heintz Art Metal Shop began in 1906 in Buffalo, N.Y. They were makers of fine metal objects of the Arts and Crafts era (1900-1920). This inkwell is a fine example of their work.
It is one piece of a larger desk set called "Sterling Silver Lovebird Overlay on Dark Brown Bronze". The complete set includes a pen tray, letter opener, rocker blotter and a letter rack w/perpetual calendar. The inkwell does not have the Heintz makers mark, but we know it is a Heintz piece because the letter rack calendar piece is marked and this pattern is documented in reference books on Heintz productions.
This inkwell is in excellent condition and would be a fine start to a collection of pieces made by the Heintz company.
