Rookwood Pottery 1949 Oxblood Ash Tray
Rookwood created production ware or utilitarian pieces that were meant for everyday use. Here is one of those designs.
The glaze on this round ashtray is Oxblood : a deep red with gold flake. We have not seen this piece before and it is unusual to have a metal holder for your cigarette. Appears to not have been used as an ash tray. Very unusual and sure to please any finicky collector. This displays well from all angles and are perfect for your mantle or use as a catch-all to hold keys or paperclips. Own a piece of history.
Wonderful ashtray in that it has no major damage, no repairs, no cracks, and free from crazing. This does have faint hairline but is so light it is difficult to find. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops.
Authentic and marked appropriately with the Rookwood logo and shape.
