A stunning Czech/Bohemian faceted large art glass ashtray, in an Art Deco or mid century modern Murano Mandruzzato style. It's by Desna (signed) and circa 1960s/1970s vintage. It's a long and low asymmetric triangular shape with three subtle channels for a cigarette, and a triangular rounded inner well. The rim and base are flat and polished. There's 6 cut polished triangular faces (facets), going down to a triangular base. Each side is polished flat and it reflects the light in an amazing prism way. It clear bright crystal glass. It's hand made/hand finished - a beautifully and skillfully made quality piece. Looks amazing in the sunshine and on display, the photos don't do it justice. A large 180mm long x 90mm wide x 40mm high. Excellent example with no signs of age. Just one teeny fleabite that I can find. Etch signed to the base. Includes P&P to the UK. Perfect gift idea, and a collector would love this!
