Description
Mid-Century Modern yellow-red footed ceramic ashtray, marked and dated, "Treasure Craft, 1963, Made in USA, NO. 11".

Treasure Craft, which was at one time California's largest pottery producer, was founded in 1945 by Alfred A. Levin. He began his business by selling items manufactured by local California potters, setting up shop in Gardena, near Los Angeles.

By the early 1950s, Treasure Craft was manufacturing its own ceramics and had expanded to several small locations in southern California. In 1956 Treasure Craft consolidated manufacturing and shipping in Compton. The company also opened a second facility in Hawaii, which was responsible for some of Treasure Craft's most popular lines known as Hawaiiana.

From its start until it closed in 1995, Treasure Craft was a popular maker of stone pottery, which included cookie jars, dinnerware and collectibles by well-known sculptors such as Robert Maxwell and Don Winton.
