Have you seen one of these? A Purse ashtray, so that the lady always was a lady for her husband too IF he needed a smoke in a place when they were out. It was my Mom's. From around the 1960's era. When *smoking* was an acceptable thing to do for both Men / Ladies. Yes, this has had a bit of a hard life. But considering it was carried, and banged around in a purse - it shows its character. I imagine there were Blue stones ( or pearls ) or something in the corners at one time but they are long gone. It had its own little handle to hold onto if you needed just to hold it and there no table to put it on. About 2 inches by 2 inches. It kept your ashes and butts in there till you had a place to put them. Probably was really Pretty when it was *New* years ago. I remember my Mom and Dad using this at functions.
A Blast from the Past -- From my family stuff. Ever seen one?
Hope you enjoy!! ;-)
