Hi CW Gang:
Found this today as I happen to go past a Garage sale here today - just down the block from me. I snapped this up as it just screamed old to me. The Bull Dog Mascot has been an advertisting Icon of mack trucks for years. This is a Cigar ashtray // Hood ornament due to the bigger rest, but an Ashtray is still an Ashtray for other smokes too. The people home I bought it from were older and downsizing. Marked on the bottom with "Central Die Casting & Mfg Co. Chicago USA". This is heavy - weighs 1 lb 13 oz. It is 7-1/4" in diameter and 5" tall. On the front embossed with MACK and a Patent Number of 87931. I looked around and that is the patent number for this says Circa 1932....but I am not sure if this is that old. Had lots of dust in the right nooks....LOL.
Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!
