Markdown SALE Take a look at this heavy metal Advertising Souvenir Ashtray from the 1934 Chicago World's Fair, with Walgreen Drugs as the sponsor highlighted in the middle along with A Century of Progress that the world's fair was known for that year. The metal looks like a dark grey pewter or gunmetal gray, but it seems to be too heavy for pewter, so must be some kind of mixed steel or metal. This could probably hold cigars as well as cigarettes because of the wider slots where your tobacco product would rest. Between those three places you will find pictures and symbols for the following: Travel and Transport, Hall of Schience, Belgian Village, Sky Ride, Old Fort and Dearborn Electrical Group.
Some of the plating is worn off of the back along with some scratches, but the front side, the side you see, is just great! Again, this is very heavy, so wherever you set it, it will stay, and not tip over with your ashes. It's a great collectible if you have other World's Fair memorabilia, or if you collect old tobacciana items. It measures 5 1/2" across, and weighs just an ounce or less than a pound before packing. You won't be disappointed to add this to your vintage advertising and souvenir collectibles!
