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.

    Hi I'm fairly certain they were made in Australia and sold to yanks as souveniers.

    Hi Ozmarty, I never said they were made anywhere else, but I guess if you were the one making them, then I understand.

    The other thing to remember is the war was a combined effort and as colonies of Britain at the time the soldiers were recruited in both our countries ! These were sold in all countries and were popular reminders of the war and the war effort.
