This ashtray depicts a sleek, P-51 Mustang model held aloft by a thick clear plastic "S" stand, diving toward the Axis target of your choice. This model never had a propeller, so the blades haven't broken off. It has one blue and white star insignia, on the left wing, and two partial decals on the fuselage. The aircraft is 5 3/4" wide, and 5" long. Everything is black bakelite except for the contrasting clear stand. The heavy dished base is 7" in diameter, and 1" high. It has two grooves, and two slots to hold cigars, cigarettes, and matches. The front has a silver metal tag, suitable for inscription. The bottom is marked " The Master Tray, Daka-Ware, Chicago". If you are a WWII, AAF buff, this is a scarce, high quality piece to add to your collection.
