Antique Frank M. Whiting & Co. sterling silver and glass coaster set of 2. This pair of coasters were also meant to double as an ashtray and were once sold as part of a smoking set that included a lighter and cigarette urn. I believe they date from between 1931 and 1940. Frank M. Whiting & Co. existed under this name from 1896 or 1897 to 1940 and in 1931 began collaborating with Hy Glo lighters creating smoking sets. Good vintage condition with a beautiful patina. Some small dings in the silver are present and one of them has a small circular imperfection in the silver. Both are stamped Frank M. Whiting & Co. 4 and one has the Patent Pending worn off. Although the silver is not stamped with a number my research has found that all similar pieces by this manufacturer are .925 silver.
