“Functional Sculpture”

Murano Italian Heavy Glass Ashtray (LEO Design)

Though not “glassware” in the conventional sense, this newly-acquired piece is beautiful nevertheless.  Made in 1960’s Murano, Italy, it would make a substantial contribution to any domestic vignette—warm antique or cool modern.  While it functions as an ashtray, it also provides a sculptural anchor to any desk, credenza or coffee table.
