Okay, Here is a bit of a Mystery item. Yes, I just found this. I HAD to buy it because it was stunning, it was marked......and I have Never heard of the Company. This has such a 1950's style to it and such an eye-grabber. I have NOT seen another by this company. Obviously, it is NOT called Carmel due to the color.....LOL. Now there is a MONT-CARMEL, in Quebec ( or is it MOUNT CARMEL for spelling )so not sure IF that area and this piece could be related (???).
This is a very big Ashtray - about 9.25 inches across, and almost 2 inches deep with a VERY clear printed incised mark on the bottom saying:
~ ~ ~ ~ CARMEL 2375 CANADA ~ ~ ~ ~
Again, I could NOT find any info for CARMEL, Canada Pottery??
There is some another pottery maker with a hand-incised lettering of the word CARMEL - I found online. Those are believed to be from Carmel, California, but they do not know much about that company either
So is this a RARE PIECE of pottery from a short-lived Pottery marker here in Canada? I have NO idea. They mystery begins....
It looks so 1950's to me........and GREAT Ashtray Piece !!!!
Thanks for looking, and ANY info you know or can find is Greatly appreciated. Thanks again......
