Blue Ridge Pottery Rooster Cigarette Box and Ashtray
A fabulous and fun hand painted cigarette box and ashtray box from Blue Ridge Pottery, with a colorful Rooster kicking around on the front while his more sedate (and detailed) companion resides within. You'll find the two pieces to be in wonderful condition aside from a tiny rough area or glaze flake on the back of the ashtray, age crazing and a small factory flaw indentation on the base's edge that's glazed over (see pics). The box measures 4 1/8 inches long, 4 3/8 inches wide and is 1.75 inches tall, while the ashtray is 3 1/8 inches squared and .5 inch at its upturned edge. The box is marked Blue Ridge Hand Painted Underglaze Southern Potteries, Inc. Made in U.S.A. twice on the bottom although it's hard to read. Gaily hued and humorous what other pottery box can boast the same? (OK, don't answer that....) You'll like!
