Coyote Western butterfly ashtray Pompeian Bronze clad, orig. glass insert, 1922:

Wonderful antique ashtray adorned with the figure of a coyote, head thrown back in full howl, and butterflies gathered at the edges of the bowl. Designed by Paul Herzel, his name formed into the back of the base. Original glass insert included.Bronze-clad, a manufacturing technique whereby a skin of bronze was deposited on a plaster form through the process of electro-plating. A handful of companies used this method in the early 1900s to make decorative household objects that had the look, feel and heft of solid bronze yet still were affordable by the middle class.One of those companies was Pompeian Bronze, operating in NYC in the early 1920s. I have an original Pompeian Bronze catalogue and it shows a smaller ashtray with exactly the same animal figure. That piece is titled, "Coyote" which is how I know it is a coyote and not a wolf.Condition is excellent. No damage whatsoever, no breaks or chips in cladding, nothing dented or mashed. The coyote's ears and muzzle are in perfect shape, as are the butterflies' wings. Finish is original and shows only a little wear. There is a felt on the bottom but it is not original. The piece sits flat and stable.6 3/4 inches tall; 6 inches side to side; 7 inches front to back.Perfect gift for the desk of a Western-motif collector. Don't smoke? - use this as a coin dish.US shipping only. USPS priority. I pack with care.I SPECIALIZE IN ANTIQUE BOOKENDS AND DECORATIVE OBJECTS.
