Back when everyone smoked, ashtrays were scattered everywhere throughout homes, offices and businesses. As a result, there were many interesting and innovative designs so they would fit into the decor of a home or office. I can just see this sitting on someone's desk in a busy office setting.
A round "frame" holds a small, clear glass dish at the center for ashes. The dish is cleverly held in place by three equidistant cigarette rests, so there's no danger of it's falling out by accident. The frame is made of bakelite. It is a brownish color with darker streaks, so that it looks a bit like burled wood. On the under side, there are three tiny feet, directly under the cigarette rests.
The piece measures 3-1/2" in diameter. The glass dish inside measures 2-3/4" in diameter. It's in very nice condition with no chips or cracks. There are some very light signs of wear on the bakelite.
Remember when you used to play in your mother's jewelry box?
