California Pottery Ashtray Mid Century Modern California Originals: It's hard to refer to this Mid Century Modern artwork as an ashtray. It is a strikingly beautiful feast for the eyes. I wish I could show a dozen photos of it because it has a different look at every angle. The colors aren't too shabby either. It is finished in a cobalt blue glaze with subtle streaks of teal green.

This is a handmade piece modeled from a slab. Evidence of that includes the marks made by the clay trimming tool on the bottom and the unglazed foot. Mass produced pieces were slip cast and did not need to be trimmed.

The bottom is marked California Original 616 U.S.A.

It measures about 13" long and about 9" wide. There are no chips, cracks, or defects of any kind on this piece. It is about as perfect as it gets!
