Ceramica Le Torri, Made in Italy Large Ashtray
Unusual and hard to find vintage Ceramica Le Torri Italian ceramic porcelain oversize ashtray. At the base it measures 8.5" in diameter and is 3.5" high. It has sloped sides that has sculpted raised leaves and vines scrolls. There are transfer ware images of a old peasant scene paintings in circles on three sides. Each round is framed in an embossed round frame trimmed with gold leaf. There is a band of gold leave trim on the top and bottom rim. The condition is good. There is wear to the images and on the bottom foot ring there is a chip on the inner side that is not visible while displayed. There is also on the bottom side next to the stamp is a faint crackle line in the glaze that I would not call a crack as it does not go through to the other side
