Clear Ashtray? with geometric bottom ID please?
« on: January 16, 2014, 10:18:03 PM »
Hello all

I picked up this clear ashtray (although it doesn't have indentations for ciggies) which is a sort of wavy square shape.  It has a geometric design on the base and I assume it's made in a mould. 

15.5cm square and 3cm high.

I'm in the US but it doesn't really look like it's from here.  I originally though Blenko but all their ashtrays seem to have the indentations to rest your cigarette in.

Many thanks for your continued help.

Santa

Without indents, it is more likely to be a pin dish or a butter dish (for the little curls of butter which get served to an individual) than an ashtray.  :)

Ah, i hadn't thought of that, thanks.  It's a pretty heavy dish though at just over a kg.

Maybe a bit big for a butterdish then, sorry, I wasn't paying attention to the size, I tend to think in inches, not cm. :-[
