Item description

Here is a rare Metlox Poppytrail ashtray from 1955. One of the early "Provincial Shapes", this one is the "Red Rooster--Decorated" (as opposed to "Red Rooster--Red" a year later in 1956). This is the medium 6 3/8" ashtray. One of Mel Shaw's designs, it is said that the Red Rooster pattern "was specifically created to showcase John Johnson's newly developed selenium 'live-coal' red glaze...." (from Collector's Encyclopedia of Metlox Potteries; Carl Gibbs, Jr.) This was a revolutionary new process to add the color red (which was a problem color to glaze) in a new manner to pottery. This is a beautiful example of this new process. Shipped economy unless requested otherwise. International shipping by weight and destination. I will combine shipping upon request. : )
