Bring a bit of the British Isles into your home with this Scotsman of the MacDonald Clan Ashtray. This Plichta London England, Ashtray features MacDonald of Keppach, an elegant Highlander dressed from his scarf and kilt to his knee hose in the rich red of the MacDonald tartan, with a black sporran and matching bonnet. The art work is a copy of a painting originally done by R.R.McIan in the mid-1800's. McIan was best known for his beautiful, authentic depictions of Scottish Highlanders and his illustrations in "The Clans of the Scottish Highlands" published in 1845.

This cream-colored pottery ashtray measures 4 3/4 inches wide x 5 3/4 inches long. The backstamp reads (in black block Letters) "PLICHTA, LONDON, MADE IN ENGLAND." Plichta was a wholesaler between the 1930's and 1950's, not a potter, and was a best customer of Bovey Pottery, formerly Wemyss. He also purchased from Elton Pottery.

This ashtray is heavily crazed, but not discolored and there is some yellowing of the glaze on the inside rim and along the back edge. The black spot you see on the back edge may possibly clean off.

Item ID: 50112RL
