Retro Porcelain Ashtray, vintage ashtray, mid mod, polka dots, smoking accessory, smoker gift, stoner gift, retro ashtray, ceramic ashtray

Mid century modern inspired Heart Shaped / T-bone shaped Ashtray in Black and Gunmetal Grey. Floral polka dot pattern and gunmetal grey decals have a slight metallic sheen. This ashtray was cast from a vintage plaster mold from the 60s and then glazed and decorated with screen-printed china paint decals. I think it looks like an anatomical heart or a t-bone steak. You decide! It certainly will make for a cool conversation piece.

Not into smoking? This could be used as a fun appetizer / hors d’oeuvres dish!

Pattern: Dot Dot Floral
All my surface decoration is based on my collection of overlooked domestic patterns aka toilet paper & paper towel patterns. I’ve been collecting these swatches for around 15 years and I use the subtle patterns from my collection to create screens and decals. After the glaze firing, each piece gets a layer of decals, and is put back into the kiln once again. Usually there will be at least 2 decal firings to achieve the layered surface.


Measurements: 1.5" x 6.75" x 8"

Food Safe. Microwave & dishwasher safe. This piece is handmade and is more fragile than commercial ware. To ensure its longevity, you may choose to hand wash vs. running it through the dishwasher, but it’s up to you!
