ashtray marked "parker"???

Hi folks, I have here a fantastic ashtray.
Can anyone ID the maker, it is acid marked "PARKER" "MADE IN ENGLAND"

The PARKER looks more like the makers mark for the pens?

Any ideas

Ok, well I found two that had been sold on eBay - one green, one blue...was yours one of those Ian?

I've only perused a Parker Pen site recently (odd really, bit of a departure from glass!), and it has an 'Ask Tony' (website owner I presume) facility.

Might be worth a try?

Hi,
Rather than looking at the pen manufacturer, you might want to consider the tobacco and smoking requisites manufacturer and supplier, Parker, now part of Dunhill. Best know for their Parker "Beacon" Roller lighters, the company used very good designers such as R.Y.Goodden.
Regards,
Marcus
