General Ceramics Carillon China 1930s Cigarette Holders
These beautiful art deco cigarette holders are 2-5/8" tall and was made in the late 1930s by General Ceramics (New York) under their trade name "Carillon China." Marked with the backstamp bell logo.

The openings are not quite large enough for a deck of cards, but they certainly don't have to be used for cigarettes.

Very lovely mottled glossy glazes! Here is an example of the pale moonlight blue coloring (at Cowan, a similar glaze was called Clair de Lune). One piece has a very small nick on the foot. The other has a glazed-over tiny bump of clay on one end (factory). Otherwise, no nicks, chips, hairlines, or repairs.
