Product description

Small collection of four retro vintage pin dishes / ashtrays, in metal with mosaic tiles - one with glass beads (c.1960s)
 
A small collection of four c.1960s vintage / retro metal-based pin dishes / ashtrays with mosaic tiles (and in one case glass beads), as follows:
 
(a) A square pin dish or ashtray, measuring approximately 12.8 x 12.8 x 1.7cm (5.05 x 5.05 x 0.65in), with square mosaic tiles (mainly mottled grey / brown / white, with a few others placed at random) set into filler in a brass-finish metal base. The filler has discoloured with age and use, and there is some marking and age wear (including scratching, scuffing and a couple of small edge dents) to the base; there is some age wear including scratching and abrasion to the mosaic tiles.
 
(b) A round pin dish or ashtray, measuring approximately 13.6cm (5.35in) in diameter and 2.3cm (0.9in) deep, with mosaic tiles (mainly pebble-shaped in dark blue with white speckles and light greenish-blue with dark greenish-blue speckles, plus four leaf-shaped tiles in different colours), set into filler in a bronze-finish metal base. The filler has discoloured with age and use, and there is some marking and age wear (including scratching, scuffing and several edge dents) to the base; there is some age wear including scratching and abrasion to the mosaic tiles.
 
(c) A round pin dish, measuring approximately 10.2cm (4in) in diameter and 1.6cm (0.65in) deep, with a circle of dark brown mottled mosaic tiles and eight coloured glass beads set into sand-coloured (yellowish-brown) filler in a brass-finish metal base. There are some hairline cracks to the filler together with marking and discoloration, whilst there is some age wear to the metal including numerous scratches and scuffs to the base and several small dents / dings to the edges; there is some age wear including slight scratching and abrasion to the tiles and beads, one tile having a tiny nibble to the edge, whilst there are numerous tiny air bubbles and some surface pockmarks to the beads. 
 
(d) A round pin dish, measuring approximately 10.2cm (4in) in diameter and 1.6cm (0.65in) deep, with a circle of dark brown mottled mosaic tiles and eleven buff-coloured leaf-shaped tiles set into filler in a brass-finish metal base. There are some hairline cracks to the filler together with marking and discoloration, whilst there is some age wear including considerable scratching, abrasion and the odd small dent / ding to the metal base, together with slight scratching / abrasion to the tiles.
