This is a very neat piece. It is called a chimney ashtray or a smoking head. When the cigarette or incense rests on the bottom the smoke comes out of the woman's mouth. Very neat looking. The bottom has a signature of ESS 1985. This piece is ceramic. This piece is in good vintage shape. There are a few tiny scuffs and one very small chip on the base.
Measurements: 7” Tall
