No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

Ashtray - ID = Walther
« on: March 12, 2009, 05:16:11 AM »

I also thought I would ask about this textured ashtray with yellow sommerso effect to centre - I sold it a while back but would not mind an attribution for my picture archives - it was big, weighed about 2kg

i´m rather sure your ashtray was made by Walther. i think there is a labelled one
in one of the shops i visit regularly. maybe i´ll be able to take a picture there for
confirmation an saturday.

Dirk, thanks for the identification on this. I'll file it as resolved now. Adam is still off the board, sadly unwell, but will hopefully be able to pick up your information sometime.
