Offered for your consideration is a Homer Laughlin Fiesta yellow ashtray from the original line. Fiesta ashtrays were made from 1936 to 1973 and are the only pieces in which you will find the band of concentric rings broken...by the three (3) smooth cigarette holding indentions. This piece has no issues, just the expected factory marks...as close to "mint" as I have ever seen.
Old ashtrays are great not just for smoking but for storing/displaying mementos, seashells, loose change, olives etc. as well as holding jewelry on your nightstand or dresser top. They are perfect for storing paperclips, rubber bands, or other odds and ends on your home or office desk.
PLEASE NOTE: I have been learning about and collecting original (Pre-1986) Fiesta for over 40 years. I describe each piece as it is, warts and all. You will never find me saying a piece is "perfect" because, in over 40 years, I have never seen a "perfect" or "mint" piece, close but not there. Even those I have purchased that were never used came with factory saggar (kiln) marks and nicks associated with them, in-paint spots, fleabites, glaze skips, uneven glaze coverage (they were hand dipped!) and/or mold irregularities. These are not considered flaws, do not affect the value of the piece, and do not detract from its beauty and usability.
