Bird | Small Ashtray, in Lakeland Green
Designed by John Clappison
15cm wide x 11.5cm tall x 3cm deep
Another rare find from Clappison's excellent design collection. This stunning piece is the smaller ashtray from the set, featured in the Lakeland Green colour way.
There is very little surface wear, with the only small point to note is a the tiniest of nicks on the reverse side of the beak, as per the last picture. It is very minimal, but mentioning for accuracy.
Incredibly, this piece also retains its original vintage packaging.
