About 6.25" t. Beautiful and unusual piece!

During 1929 and early 1930, the internationally renowned sculptor Alexander Archipenko taught ceramics classes in New York. The works of his students are well designed, but exceptionally rare. They bear an ARKO logo (using letters from his surname). Some examples have the designer's name too, but not all.

This piece bears the original typed paper label, identifying the glaze as "Sang Boeuf" (oxblood red), the name as "Lady in Coat Ashtray," and the designer as B. West.

Excellent condition! No issues whatsoever to report.
