Unger Brothers sterling silver oval form pin or ash tray with shaped border and applied figural tomahawk or hatchet decoration. In bowl, there are two repousse faces: the old smoking man's face and young woman's profile with a flowing hair, intertwined with a smoke. Above the faces, there is an engraved stylized script monogram "B". The mark is partially rubbed, yet recognizable.

This outstanding Art Nouveau tray is 4 1/2" long, 3 1/2" wide and weighs 42 grams or 1.35 ozs Troy. It has very small surface scratches and minor dents.

The soft, warm, original finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.

The excellent original condition and clear, crisp detail, with no removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
