    Definitely too beautiful to eat off of! I’d throw a few tea lights on these with a handful of flat glass marbles for a fun coffee table focal point. :)

    Loooove those! I have a Peter Max “Love” ashtray that was my parents’. It’s one of my favorite things. Very psychedelic. :)

    You struck a gold mine Sarah. You never know what might be inside the Thrift Shops. This gorgeous Peter Max set you ran away with was called “Cliff Dwellers”; yours is in the Butterfly pattern. 3 other designs (Clover, Opticon, and the famous “Love”) came in a cool box; 2 plates, bowls and mugs. As a bonus the huge “Love” ashtray was thrown in for free. I bought mine in 1968 and love it. The plates scratch easily, bowls not too much…..
