This is an Italian cigar ashtray made on Murano Island in the 1950's. It has soft sloping sides and deep pink color intensified by oblong bubbles and is heavily dusted in gold. The ashtray measures 5 1/4" wide by 7 1/4" high and stands 3" high. The condition is very good, however there are three small black smudges inside the glass. There is a polished pontil on the bottom of the ashtray. I have used this piece which was my Fathers' to float roses.

The retailer in me wants more dimension, color, texture and artistry. Beauty or whimsey are a must.
