Item details

Vintage from the 1930s


black glass, amethyst glass

I believe this ashtray was made to hold pipes and/or cigars. When held up to very strong light it is actually a very dark purple, but appears black in regular light. A very elegant piece, it would make a great gift for the smoker or collector. It has some minor surface scratches but no cracks or chips. Approximately 1 inch high and 5 inches in diameter, thick heavy glass.
