A pair of absolutely incredible smoking pipe trays with cork tappers, Italian, dating from the 1950’s. Made of pottery and covered with gilt leather, beautifully patinated though obviously scarcely used. Designed as bird’s heads, faintly resembling the Egyptian god Thoth. The gilt leather with impressed non-figurative decoration, intended to look Egyptian in style. Unsigned. Width "10/ 25,5 cm. Condition: fine.
