Description: From what we can determine this the largest of the leaf ashtrays designed and produced by Auböck.  These are beautifully designed and produced.  Heavy and substantial with a gorgeous patination and highlights of polished brass.  

A smaller version is pictured on the back cover of the Kois, Clemens book.  We have only seen a few others in this size and impeccable condition come to market.  One sold at Wright auctions in October 2016, for $1,125 clobbering its presale estimate of $250-$350 and that example was unsigned and unmarked.  We were fortunate to be able to acquire two and both are in the same apparently unused condition.  Both are marked as shown with the correct impressed Auböck signature and Made in Austria markings.  The original drawings for this are found in the Archive books referenced above.  The price is for a single ashtray, but both are available for sale and we are always happy to entertain offers on the pair.
