Cristallerie Antonio Imperatore - Ashtray / Paperweight

Description
Cristallerie Antonio Imperatore - Ashtray / Paperweight
Italy - 1970-1979 - Fumé crystal

Cube-shaped ashtray, decidedly space age design.

Each side is characterised by the presence of a shallow convex circle. On one single side, the convex circle is deeper and becomes a compartment for containing ashes while the edges feature two diametrically opposing ledges that act as supports for 2 cigarettes.

Any side can act as a base, so it can be turned and leaned depending on your preference.

In excellent overall condition, note that there's a small crack and a microscopic chip; these defects are not visible to the naked eye and can only be identified using a more accurate tool.

Manufacturer's label partially faded, still present.
