This old souvenir of Washington, D.C. has a dual purpose. It could be used as an ash tray with two cigarette rests and two areas for ashes, but it could also be used as a small wall plaque. Fortunately, the original owner used it as a wall hanging and preserved the lovely air brushed sky and the cold painted flower border. The rim is cut out among the flowers, leaves and the script writing at the bottom. The evidence of a wall hanging is further confirmed by the presence of an old string loop that was used to slip over a nail.

This measures 5 1/2 inches wide and 4 3/8 inches tall. The front displays the U.S. Capitol, Lincoln Memorial and the two ash receptacles (or pictures) are separated by the Washington Monument. Made of pot metal, the back is marked with Japan and a logo which is a triangle with a G inside and the words Nov Co beneath it.

Rarely do you find one of these old novelty items that is so well preserved!
