Smokin' hot MOD.

Picked up this wicked Mid-Century Italian bowl this weekend. The colours remind me very much of West German Lava pottery but it's still distinctly Italian somehow. Love the fire and teal combo!

Also love my large bright yellow ashtray which measures around 8.5" x 8.5" across and 2" deep. Even though I've got a warm instagram filter applied to the pic the yellow glaze is actually even brighter.

Oh and the best part...  I'm pretty sure it's Bitossi! Although it's not marked I found these two similar references online which are both listed as Bitossi for Raymor. The marking on underside of the solid red one is identical to mine:

And last but not least... for your viewing pleasure I give you this elegant smoky green ashtray. It's marked "Danmark" which means it was commercially produced for the domestic market.

My ashtray collection is slowing building, perhaps I should take up smoking, NOT!!! I mean I LOVE Mad Men but not quite willing to go there.
