This a circa 1910s-1930s stunning deep blue Gerz stoneware lidded humidor in superb condition. Expectionally rare - this is the only example we've seen and have never seen it represented in books. Per Sprung's book Decorative Golf Collectibles, these were made by Simon Peter Gerz, with the golf scene in relief and were sale glazed. Fully marked on bottom. 8 Golfers/caddies around the outside. Per Sprung's book, the factory dates back to 1857 and these pieces were made in the "early 1900s" (believed to be 1910s to 1930s). 6 1/2" tall to top of lid, and 6" diameter at widest.
