Rookwood “baldwin Piano Rodeo” Ashtray, 1954
Commercialware ash tray made for the Baldwin Piano Co., celebrating the Baldwin Rodeo, which was held in Cincinnati in 1954. What the Baldwin Rodeo was is a good question. The one inch by 6 1/4 inch tray, covered with the Wine Madder glaze, is marked on the bottom with the Rookwood symbol and the date. Uncrazed with a chip beneath the rim.
