Offering a 1930's Jeannette Glass, Iridescent, Carnival, Marigold Ashtray - Checkerboard Basket-weave Pattern - Dual Match Holder
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 can either hold a standard small size box of matches which will slip over the outside of the center match box holder and will leave the box open at the top, or it will hold a standard book of matches inside the center 2 "bars" in the middle. NOTE: The close up pictures are just to show how the match holder slot is made.
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, scratches, stains, or fading of the iridescence. There are five tiny nicks around the top of the inside rim wall. They are really small and are not noticeable to the eye due to the checkerboard pattern around the rim but, they can be felt with a finger. There is some bottom wear which is normal. I don't see any major flaws on this item like the usual manufacturing flaws you will find on mass produced glass. Inclusions such as straw marks, bubbles, lines, mold roughness......etc. 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.
