    This ashtray measures 4" long x 3.5" wide x 2.5" high. This went on the shelf at GW today as I was standing a couple of feet away. I snatched it up immediately. It reminded me of the cigar ashtray that I posted a few months ago:

    https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/254267-diamond-matches-cigar-caddy

    This one is different, no match holder, just slots for a cigar and a couple of sizes of cigarettes or cheroots. There is no writing on this one and it looks brand new, whereas the other one had a lot of wear. It was turn of the century, I think. Not sure what to think about this one. Still looking for images of a similar one. Calling it a mystery until I do. My fourth cool find of the day. I found two other pieces, but not planning to post them unless research shows they are worth posting.

    Update: Found it at www.bigashtray.com an online ashtray museum and store.

      Neat, a Swiss Army ashtray.

      Looks like something Visol Callisto would have made?

      @Toyrebel - Exactly! Thanks for your comment!

      @Dizzydave - Thanks, it does look like his work. I wasn't familiar with him so had a nice time researching him.

      Here is a link to where I identified it:

      It was also made in green and amber glass.
