Description Art Nouveau Dec. Steel Ashtray ca 1920s
Notes ca. 1920s Art Nouveau steel ashtray. It has a flower, leaf and vine design carved on the inside middle, surrounded by a stylized multiple-line border. The cigarette "rest" is a separate welded-on piece of steel which "hangs" over the side and measures 1-1/8" long x 5/8" wide. The ashtray itself is 4-3/8" circle. A trace of corrosion on the cigarette rest and the weld line under it is the only problem on condition, though the carved lines on the surface could stand just a bit more cleaning. A lovely bit of history from both the perspective of smoking collectibles and the Art Nouveau movement.
