Made in the 1930’s in USA of cast metal, this stylised statue was originally an ashtray made originally to stand at the end of a sofa or chair, but now probably more useful as a trinket dish or potpourri. Would originally have had a glass ashtray dish to the top (now missing). Stamped into the base metal – Frankart. These original Frankart pieces are now proving hard to find and are highly sought after by US collectors.
Very good condition.
7 inches (17.5cm) diameter, 24 inches (60cm) high.
