Product description

Jopeko retro vintage West German "fat lava" pottery ashtrays x 2
 
A pair of c.1950s-60s vintage / retro West German pottery "fat lava" ashtrays by Jopeko, each having a handle / cigarette rest and one having an additional pair of lugs, finished in matt white glaze with purplish-brownish-black crackling and a motif of three coloured glazed dots to the upper surface, and shiny black glaze to the underside. One bears the number "700" moulded in relief to the base, whilst the other is impressed "700 / FOREIGN"; although neither bears the manufacturer's name, this design is known to have been produced by Jopeko, closely resembling Jasba "Cortina" ware but being distinguishable from it by the coloured dots.
 
Although these original vintage pieces show some signs of age including nibbles to edges / corners (see condition description below), together with crazing and other imperfections (dating from manufacture) in the glaze, they remain nicely displayable, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of retro ceramics - or a great finishing touch to a mid-century-style interior.
