Greece, officially known as the Hellenic Republic, lies at the southeastern tip of Europe. This wonderful ashtray, being handmade in Hellas and made by Xipolias, accented with 24k gold seems to be rare, or at best, very hard to find. It is very ornate and detailed, depicting a couple courting each other using music as their lure.
It measures 5 1/4" across and is cobalt blue, accented with matte and high gloss 24k gold. The underside is stamped in 24k gold with the following "MADE IN HELLAS 24K CERAMOTECHNICA XIPOLIAS. Other than a couple of tiny fleabites on the inner edge of this ashtray, there are no other flaws.
