The Australian trench art ashtray I won in an auction in Essex from
a family run auction I like to buy from.
I just saw a site that had around 2 similar items for sale at one time. I think those were brass with a chrome plating. Looks like they may have been made in England during 46 and 47. Both other examples I saw had the tray with engraved kangaroo and the major Australian cities. I also have seen photos of ones with a brass kangaroo that sat on the tray, probably around 4 inches high.
