Vintage 1960s Paris "Rencontre au café" small ashtray


Product Details


Product Description

Here is a very pretty little ceramic ashtray representing a Parisian scene. A young man, sitting at the "terrasse" of a cafe, lifts his hat to greet an elegant lady, who is walking around her little dog.

The scene is supposed to take place in the beginning of the 20th century (the lady's hat and dress...), but the design is typically from the beginning of the 1960s, possibly end of 1950s (legs and feet of the man, his face, the little dog...).

Apart from the design, the ashtray is white with some shiny gold paint at the edges and on the cigarette holders. 

This ashtray may have been sold as a tourist souvenir, but it is very unlikely that it has been used in a cafe or a restaurant. Moreover, it looks like it has never been used.

It is in very good condition, apart from a small chip on the reverse side (please see last picture) and a small manufacturing defect, also on the reverse side. Some signs of wear where the ashtray touches the table.

Dimensions: 10.4 cm  x  10.4 cm  /  2 cm high

Weight (without protection and packaging): 86 g

£12.50 inc. tax
