Another basement treasure.
I loved this the moment I spied it.
I know it's an ashtray, but it's so beautiful
the handpainted blue design, the satin glaze, the soft shape of it
I thought I'd be able to identify it from the signature,....but no.
I've no idea of it's age or where it was made.
Could be Moroccan? European?, of from an American pottery?
any guesses would be welcome.
Thanks for stopping by.

    Maybe it was off the SS New York? Post 1893. The SS new York was the boat that almost collided with the Titanic on April 10th 1912 on her maiden departure.

    Clever mechanism to get rid of ashes and butts into the container below. It's got a Maroccan look, Iznik blues!
