$138.80 $173.50

The incredibly gorgeous turquoise-green Italian art-glass ashtray is in great to excellent condition. According to references, the larger "square" size and exquisite turquoise-green color are consistent with mid-century modern ashtrays from the 1950's and 1960's. Even more, an ashtray of this size with its thick and heavy body would have been found in rooms that often entertained guests. While it is incredibly difficult to discern, there appears to be a very small (possibly layered) acid mark located on the inside of the square foot of the bottom. One of the words that is barely discernable in the acid mark is very consistent with "ITALY". According to references, Murano glass markings can have both a signature of a maker and a location in the same marking. While it is hard to be for certain, the "layered" appearance of the letters are most likely due to the words in the acid mark being so closely grouped together on the very short inner wall of the bottom foot. However, since there is no way to be absolutely certain this is an actual Murano glass ashtray, it being described in this listing as being in the Murano-style. Also, there are some very faint - but slightly noticeable - imperfections inside the thick translucent turquoise-green glass. While a few are actually tiny dot-like air pockets in the glass, there are a couple of very thin hair-like lines inside the glass. Under magnification, one of the lines appears to be made up of incredibly tiny air pockets in a chain-like formation. In addition to the incredibly gorgeous translucent-green glass and aesthetically attractive imperfections, it is also important to point out two more features found on this gorgeous art-glass ashtray. First, the square diamond pattern on the underside provides optical depth to the thick turquoise-green glass. The diamond pattern causes light to refract differently as the ashtray is moved in the light. Second, each corner has an open concave slot that appears wide enough to hold a cigar. Even though the wider concave slots serve an actual purpose - to hold either cigars or cigarettes, the smooth-surface concave slots also help to redirect and break up light as it passes through the glass. In fact, when looking downward onto the top of the beautiful square ashtray, each concave corner slot looks like the corner of an X.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, it is important to point out that since there does not appear to be a color description on the ashtray, turquoise-green is simply the best way to describe the greenish translucent color.

There is one small chip on the inside edge of the smooth foot of the base with the acid mark to its left - see last photo. Other than this, there are are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this gorgeous turquoise-green art glass ashtray. There are some very slight vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the pieces in this listing - mainly on the smooth base of the bottom where it has come in contact with different surfaces. Also, there are a couple of imperfections in the glass - one of which looks like a tiny hair-like line on the inside of the glass. However, under magnification, the tiny hair-like line is actually made up of incredibly tiny air bubbles inside the glass.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous turquoise-green Italian art-glass ashtray are many. The display case or china cabinet would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous translucent turquoise-green art-glass ashtray. Also, the open collectibles shelf would welcome this beautiful Italian art-glass ashtray for its thick and heavy square shape and mid-century modern charm. In addition, the growing glass collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this beautiful turquoise-green Italian art-glass ashtray.

The collector will appreciate this translucent turquoise-green art-glass ashtray for its great to excellent condition, thick and heavy square shape, diamond pattern on the underside, mid-century modern charm, and beautiful overall appearance.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
