I have here a fun and very retro set of plaid fabric and anodized aluminum mid century modern weighted ashtrays in their original sales box - see the last pic for the box - great graphics! The weighted little "bean bag" portion seems to be filled with small stones, not beans. The top metal strip is stamped Japan.

They come in their original sales box which in itself is a hoot. On the box, the men are sitting around in suits and ties smoking. The graphics on it show how safe it is and even show someone smoking in bed as though that were a fabulous choice to make!

The ashtrays are in nice shape - I don't think they have ever been used. The colors are just gorgeous and saturated - teal, gold and red - with plaid fabric to coordinate with each. A couple of the seams on the teal plaid looked a bit iffy so i popped a few stitches in there just in case.
The last picture group shows my skill with a needle. Not considerable but i can stitch a bit! See the last photo to see what you think.

The box is a little rough , the back portion is not attached to the bottom anymore but fits in nicely and stands up and stays in place should you want to display these. The red aluminum has a tiny dent in the top you really have to look for to see...take a look at the 4th pic to see what you think.

If you are not inclined to use these as intended you could use them as a catch all for jewelry , coins or desk items. They make a very pretty and unique addition in that regard.

The box measures 9.5" long, by 4.5" tall and 3" deep. The ashtrays themselves measure 3.25" in diameter and 1.25" tall.

This pretty little set for your desk, dresser or wherever will come to you via the USPS and will be well packaged for the trip. Thanks for stopping by to have a look!
