Vintage 1950s Handmade Japanese Ceramic Cigarette Box & Ashtrays Mother Of Pearl For Sale
This sale is for a vintage 1950'sJapanese smoking setconsisting of a cigarette box & 2 matching ashtrays.This set is from the 1950's.My wife'sDadgot these when they were in Japan in the early 1950's. They are used, but in what we consider to be "very good" condition for their age. Please see the pictures for full details. They are ceramic or porcelain, with beautiful inlaid Mother of Pearl, whichhas maintained its original gorgeous colors. There is writing on the bottom of the cigarette box that says "Made by Hand in Japan Marun Ware". You can see that stamp in one of the pics. We feel that the cigarette box & ashtrays actually look better in person than what the pictures show. There is a small brownstain in the bottom of one ashtray, & some light wear around the edges. The cigarette box has some light scratches on the bottom, but they show up much more in the pics than they do when you are actually looking into the box. There are some chips in the black paint around the edges of the box, but it appears that only the paint is chipped, not the ceramic. There is no major damage to any of the pieces; no cracks or chips in the ceramic that we can see. We have not attempted to clean or repair any of these pieces. They would probably clean up very nicely, but we want the new owner to get them in original condition. The cigarette box measures about 6 1/2" long, x about 3 1/4" wide, x about 1 3/8" high with the lid on. The ashtrays measure about 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" at the widest points.
This beautifulset can be used as a smoke set orfor decoration;can beexhibited as an example of fine Japanese workmanship; or can be enjoyed as memorabilia from the 1950's.
