Ashtray with a floral needlepoint design under glass. Possibly intended as a wall decoration. An intricate needlepoint design with a blue and pink flower surrounded by green leaves and orange accent flowers is framed by a round gold metal frame and inset within black base made of a sturdy fabric. The enitre base is encased under concave glass and rimmed with gold metal and two attached cigarette rests.
Donated by Angeline Kringas along with two other handpainted vases, a needle point astray and handpainted salt shaker. The ceramics appear to be made by the G Maras Co Athens in Greece which produced Neoclassical handpainted greek art. Ashtray appears to also be made in Greece from a company based in Athens.
