Rookwood Pottery Ashtray Black Moth Triangle Tray (Shape 2890),1935
Marie Longworth Nichols founded Rookwood Pottery in 1880. During the early years, the pottery was not financially successful but was supported by the Nichol's family wealth. Over the years, they employed numerous artists to paint and design their wares. They also created production ware or utilitarian pieces that were meant for everyday use.
Here is one of those designs. The glaze on this moth ashtray is known as Gloss Black. This triangle ashtray is difficult to find. 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 minor scratches from everyday use. Although the scratches show worse in the pictures, they are less apparent when looking at it in person. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. Please review the high resolution pictures because they are part of the description. The pictures are taken with a macro lens which show exceptional detail. Please review each picture carefully and contact with any questions.
