Offering a 1930's Jeannette Glass, Iridescent, Carnival, Marigold Ashtray - Cigar - Cigarette Snuffer
Vintage iridescent ashtray with the starred bottom. Jeannette Glass Company made several versions of this shape ashtray and they all have starred bottoms but the tops and the center match holders and snuffers vary. The tray is large enough to accommodate cigars and the center is a cigar snuffer instead of a match holder. This is the first one I have ever seen with a snuffer. I usually only see the ashtrays with the dual match holders.
I am also listing three other Jeannette Glass Carnival Marigold ashtrays today and they are all made different than this one but they are all the same size. They are being offered for sale separately but, the last picture shown in my listing show all four together so you can see the differences in the way they are made.
If you are a collector of Smoking memorabilia or a Tobacciana collector, check us out. Searching on Jeannette Glass Marigold should show these four plus I have other glass ash receptacles and sets available for sale by other makers.
Pre-owned but: No chips, cracks, nicks, scratches, stains, or fading of the iridescence. Some bottom wear is normal. There are the usual manufacturing flaws you will find on mass produced glass. Inclusions such as straw marks, bubbles, lines, mold roughness......etc. PLEASE NOTE! However, this piece has more manufacturing flaws than what might be called usual. There are straw lines around the snuffer and about half around the bottom of the inside bowl area near the inside wall. These are not cracks, they are where the glass cooled too quickly or was not released from the machine mold smoothly. This left superficial pull lines in the surface of the glass. (SEE PICTURES) Quality control being what it was, back in the day, these happenings were ignored and the pieces went on to the next step without being rejected from the automated machines. The iridescence on this piece is quite nice, with good color. Jeannette Glass was one of the first makers to automate their manufacturing and was making machine made glass items in 1924. By 1927 they had ceased to use any hand operations.
SIZE: 5 3/4" diameter. Approximately 3/4" Tall at edge.
