Circa 1920s, this is a LARGE. heavy metal tobacco stand/ashtray holder that is marked, "APT-N.Y.". APT was a direct competitor of Frankart, and made similar style Art Nouveau, Art Deco, decorative metal items. It appears to be all original, including the old, protective, felt covered cardboard bottom. Until I researched other pieces from this manufacturer, I thought the line on the crown of her head might be a repair. But, this is a mold line, as seen on their other pieces. Included are two, jet black glass pieces. One is an ashtray, and the other, I believe was to old cigarettes. Of course, this piece would make a fabulous table center piece, but could also be used as a vanity piece, to hold jewelry, pins, or other trinkets. The ashtray fits perfectly. The other dish seems a little small for the space, so, although from the same era, I don't know if the glass pieces are original to the piece. The overall height is just under 8 inches. The base measures 7&3/4 at the widest point, and about 9 inches deep. Overall, excellent condition, with some wear to the green paint. It has not been touched up, and I haven't cleaned, or polished the piece. I apologize for the high shipping, but this is a very heavy piece.
