Vintage Shafford BLACK CAT Mirror Pottery ASHTRAY
Vintage Shafford BLACK CAT Mirror Finish Pottery ASHTRAY
This is a wonderful small ashtray made in the form of a black cat. It is unmarked but is most likely Shafford - I have a companion cookie jar piece that came from the same estate that is marked Shafford - please view my other auctions in order to see the cookie jar as well as a creamer and sugar set and teapot. This ashtray is painted with red, yellow and green features. It is glazed in a black mirror finish on a red clay body. The ashtray is in very good condition with no chips or cracks but has some paint wear, mostly to the ears. T is also some wear to the glaze on the side, but I think that this is original to the manufacture of the piece as the cat is supposed to be displayed standing upright. The piece measures 3 ¾" by 2 ¼". Please click on any photo in order to enlarge...nice addition to a collection of Black Cat decoratives....no reserve....and please check my other auctions for the aforementioned companion pieces....

I am now shipping to my US clients through USPS services. I am located in Canada but I now have a carrier service to bring my parcels directly across the border to be shipped out of the USPS postal outlet in Champlain, N.Y. In addition to the actual shipping cost, I do charge a $3.00 handling fee to cover the cost of this service and I do require insurance. Please note that even with the handling fee that it is less expensive and quicker service than using Canada Post.
