Pushing the boundaries of mid-20th Century modern design this colorful icon is a work of art which can’t be ignored. Offered is a Brooklyn Dodgers “Bum” ceramic ashtray produced by the Rempel Co. of Akron, OH circa 1950. This truly eye catching figure displays dazzling colors with a lustrous wet look glaze. “Da Bum” is standing on a white tray designed with a “mod” flair. This unique piece measures approximately 10” across, 5” deep and 7-1/2” high and sports a factory fresh appearance with deference to a few small chips on the front edge of the white ashtray portion which do not diminish the appeal of this rare collectible.
