William Spratling Sterling Silver and Wood Sun Ashtray

Extraordinary Sun Face Ashtray by silver master, William Spratling. The only other known example is illustrated in "William Spratling and the Mexican Silver Renaissance". Described as an ashtray but without indentations for the cigarette, it makes an equally wonderful table sculpture or container for small jewelry or change. Measures 4" x 4 1/4" wide and 1 1/4" tall. Ebony and sterling; circa 1940.
