I keep looking at these and I find them fantastic, but I question whether or not they are ashtrays.
They seem awfully small to be an ashtray.
Also they are decorated where a cigar/cigarette would be snuffed out --- seems a waste.
Perhaps they have something to do with liquor? A shot glass maybe?
Thanks guy's I do love them. back about 15 years ago or so at the Max show, I saw a dealer that had a whole table full of them all different, did knot have the funds then to buy them as I ahd to save every dime for helmets.
John- you maybe right that they are not ashtrays, but that is all I could come up with and that is how I have seen them advertised in the past?
Great stuff! I'm with you, I think these were ashtrays, and I also have seen them advertised as such. I'm guessing there's no indication/smell that a cigarette has been snuffed out in them? Of course, it's only been 100 since they were used, right?
