This mark dates roughly from 1926 to 1940. The company, Società Anonima Castelli Maiolica, was located in Perugia, the capital of the region of Umbria. This was actually an association of several independent potteries that was formed to sell their wares under one label. The design on this ashtray is a variation of the Mazzetto (posy) pattern. It was widely used in 18th century and revised in the 1920's for a short period.
