Cleminsons Happy Talk Ashtrays

Fantastic set of 2 Cleminsons California boomerang ashtrays, designed in conjunction with both Hedi Schoop and Barbara Willis. This line, with it's signature splatter Jackson Pollack style design, was known as "Happy Talk" and is fairly hard to come across. Dates to the 1950s - please see Chipman's California Pottery scrapbook, pgs 201,236 for more info. If you are looking for iconic mid century decorative pieces to put in your home, these would fit the bill. Brown splatter on white design, with brown matte glaze on bottom, with 3 feet on each ashtray. Large ashtray is marked on bottom with "USA".

Good vintage condition, with some crazing to both pieces. Smaller ashtray has a 3/8" by 1/4" chip to the end - see last photo.

Large ashtray measures 11" at widest. Small ashtray measures about 7 3/4" at widest.

PRICE: $80.00
