Product description

Guinness "Is Good For You" - Art Deco advertising ceramic ashtray by Wiltshaw & Robinson
 
A genuine vintage Art Deco ceramic Guinness advertising ashtray by Wiltshaw & Robinson (the makers of Carlton Ware, although this piece does not bear that name), in off-white glaze with transfer decoration comprising the famous slogan "GUINNESS / IS GOOD / FOR YOU" in large red letters alongside a picture of a pint glass of Guinness, surrounded by a black and jade green border. The base of the ashtray is marked with the impressed number "1485", together with a black printed mark which reads as follows: "GA. 562 B / PRODUCED IN GREAT BRITAIN / FOR ARTHUR GUINNESS SON & CO., LTD., / BY WILTSHAW & ROBINSON LTD., / STOKE-ON-TRENT".
 
Although this original vintage promotional ceramic piece shows various signs of age (see condition description below) together with numerous imperfections / irregularities dating from manufacture (including tiny bumps, various marks and many visible pinholes in the glaze, and a small glazed-over chip and a couple of unglazed patches to the edge), it displays nicely, and would make a pleasing addition to a collection of Art Deco ceramics, vintage tobacciana, breweriana or Guinness memorabilia.
