An ashtray with a face!!!!!!! = Skrufs - design by Lars Hellsten

Doris:
Picked this up today  at my local  RSPCA  quarterley car boot, amongst other interesting items, but this one made me laugh because to me it looks like a face.
A sturdy piece of glass no doubt about that weighs a ton(well almost) but wondered what  fellow glassies thought about it.

It looks Scandinavian - possibly Finnish.  I have seen something similar. Will try to locate and get back, but I'm sure in the meantime someone more knowledgeable will know and will respond.  :P

REf original item http://tinypic.com/e6yjv7.jpg

It's by Swedish company Skrufs - design by Lars Hellsten

I don't know the pattern name but it was put to good use on bottles and vases and bowls as well as ashtrays and classed as 'Pop Baroque'

Adam

Although it was my first thought also that this little ashtray was by Skrufs, isn't it a bit rash to say that it definitely is without finding a reference to an identical item?

No offence intended, just trying to give Doris factual information.  :)
