A hand wrought, hand-hammered copper bowl nearly floats, held up by a tripod consisting of bone legs carved to resemble miniature tusks. Three delicately stamped butterflies have alighted around the rim, their wings curved gently upward to keep your cigarette perched above the ashtray's bowl.
DIMENSIONS: 4.5ʺW × 5ʺD × 2.12ʺH
One leg has a slight wobble, and the piece (especially the butterflies, have bent slightly and changed shape over the years. The copper shows signs of oxidation / patination and even a tiny bit of verdigris which can be considered part of its appeal. It will be left up to the buyer whether or not they would like to polish the copper.
