This sharp looking, old ashtray is known as a pincherette and it has the lines of the deco period. In the center of the smooth, shallow, chrome bowl is a small black platform that has an angular “V” with a crown spanning across the top. The crowned-vee is similar to emblems that were used for the Ford crown Victoria and for the Cadillac but there is no documentation that this was specifically for an auto company or model. I can’t tell if the center platform is made of painted wood or some type of plastic like Bakelite. It has a cork bottom and is marked; A Hamilton Product - Reg. U.S.Pat. Made in U.S.A.. This style of ashtray was popular in the 1950’s and into the early 1960’s.
It measures about 5 ¾” in diameter and about 2 ½” to the top of the crown points. It is in very good condition with almost no signs of wear or discoloration to the metal finish.
