I need some help identifying the origins and when it was made. I will tell you all I know, which is not much.
I bought this on Russian ebay, the person who i bought it from got it as a present from an ex-girlfriend. Her father is a scientist, he bought it during his travels around the world. As he says it was purchased in England and it is 19th century. It is made of brass and I have checked it with a magnet, it is not magnetik.
It is rough around the edges, nice yellow color. It has some pink spots (oxidation). It took me 2 minutes to make up my mind and buy it, something just drew me to it! I paid 2 000 rubles (28 £) for it.
I didn't find any like this one on internet!
The ashtray has no markings or stamps, no text at all. Size: 14.5 x 10 cm. Metall: brass.
