Description:  This is an early Hertha Baller ashtray that has all the hallmarks of classic Bauhaus modernist design.  This example bears an Auböck signature, which we believe is fake.   Nevertheless, this is an excellent design and has the weight, quality and modernist aesthetic of an early Auböck object at a fraction the price.  Baller’s earlier designs are of extremely high quality and compete in many ways with Auböck who was a contemporary.
