The newest of my own 'big ashtray collection' ;-) this one simply *had* to come home with me, after being spotted for <$2 at Goodwill...?!! <lol>
It is indeed rather large (and thus also kinda heavy) at 8-1/2" across and 2-1/2" high, made of a lovely shade of blue glass with a sorta scalloped upper edge making for 16 cigar/cigarette rests each about 7/8" wide. Its base is indented and bears no maker's marks whatsoever that I can see.
After perusing the pages of bigashtray.com I only find one similar example (attr. to ROSICE, Adolf Matura, 1970's Czech.) but that one is smaller (12 scallops) and in a pretty purplish color instead.
Y'all glass experts will have to tell me if there's any connection between that one and my blue one, PLEASE...???!! ;-) :-) :-)
