More pictures including the base - I took some with flash as it shows the gold and red / coppery aventurine, but tends to bleach out the rest of the colours.
I love Monart as the colours change with varying  light - some pieces look vastly different from day to day, and when you photograph them you see things you didn't notice before!

Gary - My gut feeling is this is post war - I think if it was pre war the aventurine would have been used more liberally - I shall await your expert opinion  ;D

And now some more pictures showing two ashtrays ZK & ZH (4" diameter) for comparison if anyone is interested!

The base on my ZK appears to be the same as your one, though the label hides the pontil mark on my one.
The jury are still out on pre or post war.
As an aside I have an ashtray (ZH) in the same colourway as your one, which is 364 or 364A depending on if it has gold aventurine in it.
