Product description

Martell Cognac Brandy - vintage advertising pottery ashtray by Pountney & Co Ltd, Bristol
 
A nice example of an original 1950s-60s vintage / retro large oval pottery advertising ashtray for "Martell Cognac Brandy," by Pountney & Co Ltd (Bristol), in white and deep blue glaze with black underglaze transfer lettering; the base is marked with the green printed stamp "Bristol / Founded 1652 / England" (as used by Pountneys between 1957 and 1965).
 
As might be expected, this genuine vintage piece shows some signs of age (see condition description below); there are some minor irregularities / imperfections dating from manufacture including slight unevenness to the surface and the shaping of the rim, a few tiny pinholes and bumps and some tiny spot marks in the glaze, and minor imperfections to the transfer lettering, and it should also be noted that the ashtray wobbles slightly when placed on a flat surface. It nevertheless displays well as a collectable piece of vintage drinks advertising memorabilia, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of tobacciana or Bristol pottery.
