This vintage English Wade Porcelain ashtray dish has its own resident turtle, firmly attached to the bottom and well-detailed. This is how it was made. But word has gotten out and along comes another Wade turtle figurine trying to crash the party.
The ashtray is big and hefty. It measures 7 1/4 inches across by 2 inches high. There are three wide rests to accommodate cigars or cigarettes. Turtles too. The figurine measures 3 by 2 inches.
Both dish and visiting turtle are marked at bottom...WADE PORCELAIN - MADE IN ENGLAND.
Wade began making pottery in 1810 in Burslem England. They're known for their excellent, high-quality figurines.
The only notable flaw is a break in the attached turtle's foot. Overall, the ashtray looks like it was never used so color retains bright. The visitor is in excellent condition. Circa 1950s.
