Ashtray or tidy tray?
This handmade clay cigarette ashtray is a very useful object for your living room. An hexagonal shape ashtray remains quite uncommon. The six sides are emphasized by the white background of faience and the edges highlighted with green. Notches are cut in four sides to place a cigarette, but the tray can accommodate other small everyday objects. It can also be placed on the aperitif table to collect olive stones. This ashtray will surely be appreciated as a gift, in small or medium size.
A French label of quality
Moustiers Sainte Marie is well known for its faience. Earthenware craftsmanship makes the interest of this wonderful Provence village since the 17th century, under the reign of Louis XIV. Today, quite a few new sets have been created, but the bird remains the emblem of this faience. It’s handpainted in blue, green and gold colors on a white enamel, surrounded by greenery and a small butterfly. Then, the artist’s experience makes the charm of the crafted piece. In this case, this decoration ashtray is manufactured by a factory labeled "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant". It’s a guarantee of French quality and craftsmanship, here in Provencal version.
