Mid-Century Modern Pal-Bell Ashtray

Pal-Bell Ashtray

Stylish simplicity highlights this brass Mid-Century Modern Pal-Bell ashtray. Clean, modernist lines are juxtaposed with the rustic feel of the black hammered interior and signature Pal-Bell green patina-tone turquoise accents. Ultra-high quality craftsmanship from Israel coupled with a weapon-like heaviness makes this a wonderfully understated piece. We are under the assumption that this bowl-shaped piece is based on the curved ridges around the rim. However, the design camouflages its purpose, and it looks lovely just sitting on a coffee table or mantle as a decorative piece. A really interesting aspect of this Pal-Bell ashtray is its tonal quality. Just tap it with any hard object (like a pencil, etc.) and it rings like a well-crafted bell with a nice tone and long sustain! This is truly a beautiful example of 20th century Israeli metal ware, an unbelievably stylish piece for collectors of Judaica, or simply one of the nicest ashtrays you will find anywhere! It measures 4 5/8 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall. Pal-Bell manufactured a large number of decorative pieces for the home. Check below for examples of finely crafted brass Pal-Bell ashtrays. read more
