A month ago I posted some photos of my Novelty SMOKER ASHTRAY Collection and I had no intention of buying more. Today I went to a local flea Market and was all excited to find what I thought was an unusual Smoker Ashtray. When I examined it, the seller stated that he had thrown the tongue away a few moments before I had arrived. After examining it closely, I realized that it was actually a Stamp Moistener so we both went looking for the "tongue" that he had thrown away behind his booth. We found it and I cleaned it up good to restore this Stamp Moistener to it's original Glory. It's a beautiful little mid-century or earlier Stamp Moistener that will get along very well with my novelty ashtray collection. It measures 5" by 3 1/2", has the numbers 3995 or j995 stamped on the back and is made of Porcelain.
