Mosaic Tile Company Art Deco Machine Age Hound Dog Ash Tray Business Card Holder

$ 150.00
Great Art Deco Machine Age styling is evident in this ash tray by the Mosaic Tile Company of Zanesville Ohio. It is modeled with sharp angular lines and displays a sleeping hound dog on the rim. It has three wide receptacles for cigarettes, cigars, pipes, or spliffs. It is covered in a metallic bronze glaze. It is made from an Ohio faience clay and bears the oval lozenge mark with MOSAIC inside. This mark places the manufacture post-war. It doesn't appear that this was ever used for ashes. I used it to display business cards. You can also use it for keys, loose change, or jewelry. Solid and heavy, this won't tip over. It is still in perfect condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. It measures 3 1/2" tall, 7" wide and 6 1/2" deep. A pretty uncommon item, this was probably presented to special customers of the tile company.

If you're decorating an office or interior in a Mid Century style this would look great on a desk or credenza.
