4) one 5-1/4" x 2-7/8" decorated roller blotter that is 1-1/8" high at deepest part of wooden roller.  It has a door knob handle at the center top.  

The decoration around edges and on surfaces is an art deco design of rectangles with pointed edges.  The design carries from piece to piece in various configurations and dimensions (see photos).  

Manufacturer and Year  Silvercrest.  Silver Crest was the trademark used by the Smith Metal Arts Company of Buffalo, NY  by Frederick Smith. He had been the head salesman for the Heintz Metal Arts Shop until the death of Otto Heintz in 1918.

Color  Bronze with gold and brown patina. 

Condition  Excellent + condition with no dings, dents, chips or major scratches. The patina is uneven.  The desk tray has some discoloration on the back and what appear to be fingerprints inside the three receptacles.  The notepad holder has a small area of corrosion near the imprint.  The felt backing is perfect.  The perpectual calendar holder has an indentation on the back inside panel just where the imprint comes through from the back of the piece.  The roller blotter has some light wear around the wooden edges of the roller.  The blotter paper on the underside is in remarkably good shape.  All imprints and numbers are crystal clear.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
