One of a series of ash trays/ring trays, produced in the early 20th century.
Th 6in (15cm) X 5i (12.5cm) bibelot is signed with the monogram NL. It had the impressed "DOULTON LAMBETH ENGLAND" mark and the series number 8728. Most of the bibelots were designed by Vera Huggins and Harry Simeon in the period 1926-1934. It is debated whether they were intended as ash trays or ring trays - possibly either. The bibelot weighs 356g.
There are very minor (almost undetectable) scratches to the base of the tray.
