More about this item
This is a lovely mid-century Spanish signed pottery ashtray, by ceramics artist Domingo Punter.
In excellent vintage condition.
Handmade by the famous Spanish ceramicist Domingo Punter, dates from the 1950s. The bottom of the piece shows the artist's signature and R27 object reference code.
Beautiful piece for decoration in a mid-century / bohemian / cottage / folk theme.
Domingo Punter and his sons built a legacy of 5 generations of ceramists in Teruel (Aragón), in northern Spain. Punter is famous for reproducing the Spanish Romanic style ceramics from the 14th century. Hence the primitive designs using black and green, which were the colors used during that period.
Punter ceramic is very dense, so the piece is heavier than it looks. The clay in this part of Spain is a dark red, which can be seen peeking from under the glaze in various points as well as on the base.
