A lovely Bitossi Italian orange and brown pattern rectangular ashtray. Great looking orange ovals design in the interior, brown painted clay with orange around the sides and bottom. Unsure what the pattern is called, but we've had a Bitossi horse and a jar with similar treatment. For the non-smokers, would look very nice displayed with other Italian or mid century pottery. Marked on reverse with 801 Italy.
In good vintage condition, but with a bit of wear including a shallow glaze flake on rim, some fleabites to rim. Interior has a bit of white calcium or water deposit. See the last photo for details - believe the flake and the wear could be painted if desired.
Measures about 7 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches wide, 2 inches tall.
