    Pedestal Ashtrays

    Picked these up at a garage sale a few days ago. I couldn't pass them up. Paid $15/each. Thought they might make cool plant stands. But I kinda like them as they are..maybe as a catch-all stand?

    The one has a glass burnt orange ashtray similar to the one I posted awhile back. That ashtray also has a top that can be removed. Although I'm thinking that it may actually be a table top ashtray? Maybe I got 3 ashtrays?

    **actually looking at the ashtray on the right, you can see it probably had a fixed handle like the left one does. There's remains of a couple holes. So the top is actually a separate piece.**

    My burnt orange ashtray fits perfectly into the stand as seen in the last picture. I notice from the picture that one is a little crooked. I'll have to fix it later..got some new spark plugs to put in the hot rod first.

      Most often called amber glass. You don't see them often and to find one is a treasure.

      Thanks PhilM..that makes sense..amber! Guess I'm lucky, because now I have 2 large amber ashtrays!

      They were usually made in very dark black, the amber is fairly rare find and the ones made of white and colours (slag glass) were made and used when they had more decorative slag glass parts on the coloum of the ashtray. The Chrome ones usually are in the best shape and these ones from somewhere in the fifties to 60's are usually found in rough trashed states.

      Good info. Not sure if you saw my original post, but the one ashtray was used by dad in his workshop for soldering. It's been down there as long as I've been alive..

      You seem to know a lot about ashtrays...and Phillip Morris is the name of a cigarette company...hmmmmm?
