This is an old beauty in great condition...couple of tiny nicks on the center rim but that's all. Archipelago Brewery Company was bought by Malayan Breweries in 1941 and Malayan later changed their name to Asia Pacific Breweries in the early 1990's. Archipelago were the original makers of Anchor Beer whilst Malayan had the equally well known Tiger Beer. The ashtray is pretty solid pottery, was made by Ban Huat Pottery in Kuala Lumpur and is 6 3/8' in diameter. I would think it dates to the 1940's or 50's.
