I’m always very happy when I find a piece of vintage South African pottery – in days gone by, no one paid very much attention to the likes of Lucia Ware or Drostdy, but in recent years these names have become quite collectible, and I have to say, it’s really nice to see South Africans collecting pieces made locally. This Lucia Ware ashtray is typical of the pieces they produced, with that lovely soft yellow glaze. It’s not the finest piece of pottery you’re ver going to see, but it does have a great retro shape, and is in excellent condition.
A nice piece for a collector, or anyone who wants a stylish ashtray for their home.
