What's for sale?

This is a large, handmade, promotional ashtray for Ricard, the French pastis brand. Ceramique Ricard made a number of these aquatic ashtrays, in various sizes but all featuring colourful fish, brightly-coloured backgrounds and in this case, a starfish too.

This piece features a large, dark red fish enjoying a small pool alongside a starfish and seaweed. The fluted rim gives the impression of waves. It's a fun ornament and a nice example of how varied product advertising can be.
