A photo speaks so many words....what more can I say!

Here is a fun collectible tiny mini size ashtray that fits in the palm of my hand;
I imagine this is a convenient "purse size" ashtray that could be brought out when the need arose.

It is very old, probably late 1940's or early 1950's and has a Japan stamp on the back.

There is crazing to the glaze which lends a nice patina of age. The scene that has been painted is one of a European country look with a troubadour playing a string instrument.
It is not finely painted which was typical of this sort of item imported at that time.
There is wear to the gilt that accents the rim and the slots for resting a cigarette.
I also found a tiny chip on one of the cigarette resting slots.
I will price this to reflect those condition issues.

This is ceramic and measures about 3 1/4" X 2 1/2" X 3/4"

I thank you for your interest and invite you to view my other items.
I'm always happy to combine shipping when it is reasonable to do so!
