This is a handsome Golden Amber Crackle Glass Cigar or Pipe Ashtray.
The beautiful deep color of this ashtray deepens in the center, where the crackle design was added. It is a large ashtray with a triangular, finished rim. The three indentations are large enough for cigars and the overall size makes it a good choice for pipes as well. The center well is thick glass with crackling on the underside and a mostly smoothed over pontil mark.
Unmarked, and we have been unable to attribute it to a specific maker. It measures about 2 ¼" tall and about 9 ½” across the diameter of the top.
Excellent Condition: no cracks, nicks, heavy scratches or chips. It has some completely embedded bubbles and a pindot surface flaw from something (like a dust speck) landing on the surface when it was being made.
This wonderful, large piece makes quite a statement and it would be a terrific addition to any collection. We have a terrific assortment of vintage goodies, so please take a look at our other offerings. We would be pleased to combine shipping on multiple purchases.
Thank you for shopping with Cousins Antiques.
