At the end of 1952, Walter Bosse moved from Austria, where he lived since his birth in 1904, to Western Germany. Where he concentrated on his job of being an artist. This time was very productive for Bosse, and he created an entire collection of new designs in the late 1950s. During that period, the hedgehog ashtray set was born. It was a revolutionary design, and quickly became popular worldwide.
A set of four pieces made from brass patinated in black and then polished to reveal brass colured nose, feet and tips of the spikes.
