This cute little perfectly Art Deco piece of Noritake is most likely a portable individual ashtray. The shape is shown as A.171 on p. 47 of Spain's third book. I think the decoration of this tan luster ashtray is even nicer.
The ashtray measures 3' tall and stands 1' tall. The wide sloping rim has a great checker pattern on it, done in black, white and blue. It is in excellent condition and carries the red wreath mark. Add it to your collection today.
