Cream color on sage jasperware fluted ashtray. Decorated with the classical motif - Aurora, the Goddess of Dawn, driving her chariot across the sky. The piece measures 4 1/2" in diameter. Marked on reverse with several hard to read letters and "WEDGWOOD" - "MADE IN ENGLAND". Undated, but was made between 1970 when this mark first appeared and 1986 when the sage color was discontinued. Excellent condition in original box - no chips, no cracks, no crazing.
Founded in 1859 by Josiah Wedgwood in the Staffordshire district of Great Britain, the company is still producing fine pottery. Jasperware, a major innovation by the company, has been in production more than 200 years.
