Great white slab
« on: August 24, 2006, 04:51:54 PM »
Hi there

Back from the charity shop again!

What on earth is this?  Its clear glass with a textured bottom (like WF bark). length 19.5cm, depth 7.5cm and height 3cm.  It has a large oval indentation and a longer, shallower one extending from it.  It's the wrong shape to be an ashtray, my first thought and is flipping heavy.

For lying a pen on?

Does anyone know anything else about it?  Make? Country? Date? You know, the usual things!  I long for the day when I can identify and not just pick your brains.

For laying a pipe onto perhaps?  Or a desktidy - keep pens and paperclips in?

I'd think possibly Scandi but no idea who, Flick.

Defo a pipe rest or a cigar ashtray, and most likely made in Germany - I have something similar with a Zwiesel sticker.

Thanks - I can say I bought it for the boyfriend for his Davidoffs then!  That'll keep him happy.  :D

Is the bowl too small for a spoon rest?

I would rather rest a spoon in it than a pipe!  :lol:
