This English Ironstone ashtray is a rare mid century piece in the "Charlotte" pattern by Royal Crownford.
Because of its age and its rarity on the market in the round shape and with its unique bronze color background, and because ashtrays of any kind are quickly becoming an artifact that goes with a certain past generation, this piece makes an excellent collectible.

And if you are one of us who likes to pull out and use his/her collectibles this one can make an excellent condiment or appetizer server. E.g. Use it to hold olives and prop toothpicks for picking up the olives in the slots meant for lit cigarettes -- very handy and a wonderful conversation starter for guests whom I find love sharing their stories and memories about the days when these ashtrays weren't "rare".

I could also see this dish being moved to a bedroom dresser or bathroom vanity to hold rings and watches or perhaps cotton balls and cosmetics.

9" in diameter x 1.5" tall -- excellent condition despite subtle indications of use if you examine the inside bottom of the dish very carefully
