    I have an ashtray similar to the one you have. The base and the plane light up. Do not know how much it might be worth or what to do with it.

    I would donate it to the "pickrknows benevolent fund"
    Mint working are $500 -1500 range.

    Seen one at an estate auction fly over the thousand dollar mark; same marble glass near the base, without the plane. I dropped out of the bidding at $250 because I just earlier purchased the floor lamp that matched the ashtray table for $1.00 in the estates bedroom? Kind of wanted to keep it a set but not that much. The old lamp is in my garage; think I will post it. It works, just no room in the house and I will bid $1.00 just to keep the auctioneer moving on.

    These were only made in Canada. I have had several over the years, one year I sold 14 of them that I had reconditioned and and did a lot of rechroming. There are some advertised now with 1939 Worlds Fair. but that was a guy who made some extra parts for them. The piece never came out until late 1940's and the pieces with the onyx type glass that looks like marble were just a bit later - in the early 1950's. I still really love them and have still some left. I bought my first one in about 1978 and still remember that I bought it at auction for around 10 dollars.
    The ashtray receptacles often lost their moving part where the ashes came in. They can be replaced by a simple piece of aluminum thin sheet they sell at a hobby store and I had carefully cut it with scissors to fit the piece that sometimes fell out ! A great antique - you should enjoy it.

    my dad had one and this so reminds me of him -- it is beautiful -- hope you will treasure it and keep in in the family -- dad's glowed the most beautiful green on the base -- perhaps it was uranium -- i was 5 before i knew of uranium glass --lost dad when i was 10 -- just an outstanding piece of nostalgia -- i now know of uranium glass
