Antique Ashtray: Nippon "Black Cat"
Nippon porcelain is a highly sought-after Japanese collectible featuring beautiful detail and workmanship. "Nippon" is an older word for Japan but in 1921 import regulations (McKinley Tariff Act) required that only "Japan" be used, so a rule of thumb is that china marked "Nippon" was made before 1921.
This beautiful piece featuring the black cat measures 5" in diameter and has 4 resting lips for your favorite combustible smoke.
We have two available. You can purchase one or both.
