This 5 inc (12.9cm) in diameter ceramic ashtray promotes Viceroy cigarettes. Viceroys are manufactured by The Brown & Williamson Tobacco Company, and the company's logo is gilded on the reverse.
Promotional material by tobacco companies is banned in the USA, thus what is available has at least a little age on it. This is one features a simple, but effective design.
Besides being colorful collectibles, depending on their design, ashtrays can be used for other purposes than their intended one. They can double as candy , coin or ewelry holders, etc.
