Lovely old SMN shipping line ashtray in Mint condition....circa 1950's .....measures 4 1/2" x 4 1/4".....Made by the famous Dutch Company of PETRUS REGOUT. The Stoomvaart Maatschappij Nederland, ("Netherlands Steamship Company") or SMN, was also known as the Netherland Line or Nederland Line and was a Dutch shipping line that operated from 1870 until 1970. It merged in 1970 with several other companies to form what would become Royal Nedlloyd. (Nedlloyd itself later merged with P&O to become P&O Nedlloyd, now a part of Maersk.) The company's motto, Semper Mare Navigandum ("Always sail the seas"), conveniently fits the same initials.
