I'm not convinced it's mickey. Certainly has that pre war 30s 40s feel and not British. German? Continental? and if you call this a 'dish' I'll shoot you. Had two people insist recently that items sire dishes ---when they are clearly ashtrays.

Definitely an ashtray, it has the grooves for the cigarettes to rest on. I'm not convinced it's Mickey, either, more Mickey-ish, just different enough not to infringe Disney copyright while being close enough to pass at a glance. If was a genuine Disney-licensed Mickey it would almost certainly have that information on the base. It would also be painted in Mickey's usual colours.
I'd go with German, pre WWII.

Here he is paired with an elephant they called Dumbo, but I don't think his ears are big enough:

For copyright reason much pottery over the years has been made to "resemble" but not too closely.

IF you are referring to me and my John Bew Odney pottery dish then you are 'clearly' wrong.
Unless an item is made with the definite indentations to hold or rest a cigarette or associated advertising then it is a dish. If someone decides to use that dish as an ashtray then it is still a dish which is being used as an ashtray.
'Pin dish' is a generic term used in the trade for any small shallow dish of which use cannot immediately be identified by lack of certain characteristics.

Cheapo mass produced 1930's European Tourist tat/seaside souvenir rip-off of disney characters designed in form to have as wide and vague appeal as possible. Ashtray, bon-bon dish, pinholder, mickey wishing well..whatever Laughter
