A wonderful example of Art Vannes art glass. It's a lead crystal ashtray shaped like a donkey....that would make a great mini candy dish. It was made at the Art Vannes Le Chatel glass factory in NE France between 1950 and 1970.
The piece is adorable, a donkey with long ears and face. The sculpting of the crystal includes his eyes, nose and mouth. He's still in excellent condition and has the "Art Vannes France" acid mark under one hoof.
Measures: 7 1/2" long and 3 1/2" wide (tip of ear to tip of ear), 3" tall at highest point.
