It needs a bit of a polish/some tlc, but I just couldn't resist this beautiful Arts & Crafts copper ashtray (? as it is enormous for an ash tray!) The cabochons are set in beautifully detailed brass roundels. LOVE it. Trying to do some research but have come across nothing quite like it yet. It was a typical car boot price - £1!!
Close up of roundels. Could these have been added later (look at brazing). Pretty anyway, and staying with me for the moment . . .
