My god mother got me this from a country that she visited 28 years ago and told me it was worth a lot of money so don't use it as an ashtray.

Thank you.

This is a pottery ashtray made in the 1950-60's time period in Italy for Rosenthal-Netters.

Rosenthal Netters used foil stickers back then, so that piece must have fallen off at some point.

This ashtray has a value of $45 to $65.00 retail.
