    I love the Deco design of this little (3 1/2 x 2) ashtray. The center engraving is really well detailed, and the color is great. I guess I really need to narrow down my collecting, I'm all over the place with stuff!

      Never need to narrow down when collecting. Half the fun is finding something that just catches your eye. I love this piece. Definitely Czech. I enjoy collecting similar pieces.

      Thanks Sean and smiata. I hadn't realized it was Czech!

      Very nice upstatenycollector. There was a similarly nice uranium ashtray on ebay recently, went for more than i could afford:( Made me smile with your 'collecting all over the place..' Thats how i feel at the moment.

      Diversity is a sign of a health mind :-)

      Why get pigeonholed?
      Variety is the spice of life...
      You like more than one flavor of ice cream don't you?
      Shall I go on?

      Your uranium collection and vintage pins are my inspirations... Keep finding them...

      Thanks again kerry. Going to check out your mystery right now!

      I have an amber salt cellar similar to your ashtray. If it is carved from the underside it is called intaglio. I also have some pendants made the same way. You can never collect to much, the fun is in the hunt.

      Thanks, Glassaddict!

      Can you tell me how to post a picture? I haven't been able to figure it out.
    15. upstatenycollector upstatenycollector, 5 years ago
      Glassaddict, this is from the help page(http://www.collectorsweekly.com/answer-desk/how-does-show-and-tell-work ): Adding new items is easy. On the add item form, just type in a title, select up to four photos from your hard drive to upload, then write a description of your item. Be sure to include as much information as possible in your item’s description so other users can give you the best feedback.

      nice ashtray; would the engraving be Disobolus?
    20. upstatenycollector upstatenycollector, 5 years ago
      I don't think so TallCakes. He's just holding it, not throwing it. (I assume you meant Discobolus? I had to Google him). When you throw a discus, your fingers go over the edge (I threw Discus and Shot in High School). This figure is holding it in the middle. Looks like classic Art Deco to me. Of course, I could be completely off the mark!
    21. TallCakes TallCakes, 5 years ago
      engraving just made me think of Greek mythology and discus came to mind with that shape. Didn't think of tympanon, but that is most likely what it is.

      Your welcome upstate!!!!

      upstate, I think this fits into your Deco collection perfectly! I have a similar deco ashtray, but not as detailed as yours. You can see it here
