Flowers are a central symbol in Armenian art, representing ongoing inventiveness, ability and openness to languages of form, renewed growth and harmony. This ashtray features a lovely, colorful flower motif. The ashtray is surrounded by a typical Armenian designed blue border with a flower motif painted on the inner surface. The scattered flowers and leaves form one big flower. Flowers represent harmony and growth and this is captured with the colors which each represent something special. Blue is known to represent tranquility, spirituality and living beneath the sky while orange stands for creativity and a hard-working nature. Green is a symbol of growth and abundance. The rounded edges are indented for the use of resting cigarettes.

This wonderful ashtray makes for an exquisite decorative piece without having to serve its purpose but it is a great piece to put out for guests who smoke.

Bring a touch of art, history, culture and Jerusalem to someone's home with this lovely piece.

Note: Armenian ceramics are delicate and should be treated with care. Each piece is individually hand made with the ancient skill of mixing and shaping clay and water and then placing the object in an oven or kiln at a temperature of 1000°C until it hardens. The piece is then beautifully hand painted with metallic and oxidized paint, maintaining a natural color and then placed again in the oven at the same temperature. The finishing touch is one of fine glazing.
