This is a nice unusual souvenir item from the Fijian Islands. The ashtray is thin brass and has an impressed scene of a naked Fijian Maiden outlined with a tree and shrubs. The ashtray has a diameter of 7" so is quite a large one. This has the "feel" of 1930's but could be a bit later and may have come back with a New Zealand services person stationed there in World War Two. A very nice souvenir item and very hard to find this type of piece today....certainly wouldn't even be made in today's PC situation.
