Vintage Brass Enameled Butterfly Ashtray
Certainly this is one of the prettiest ashtrays I've seen! Solid brass in the shape of a butterfly with red and blue enameling, faded and worn away in spots from age and use, giving it a wonderful vintage look. The ornate detailing is raised giving this piece visual texture. A groove on the butterfly's body to hold a cigarette. So many uses around the home for a beautiful piece like this: to hold potpourri, display soaps in a bathroom, as a candy dish, in an office as a pen rest and paper clip tray or sure, as an ashtray!
The tray measures 8 inches tall by 8 inches wide and sits 7/8 inch high off a surface. It weighs just over 1 lb. There is a faded sticker on the underside but I believe it would have said 'made in India'.
A wonderful decorator piece in excellent, vintage condition.
