This little tray can be used as an ashtray or mint tray or just decorative art. It has a very pretty blue and yellow stripe design and is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or breaks. It was produced in the 1950's. The Higgins Studio, home of "modern miracles with everyday glass" was founded in 1948 by Michael and Frances Higgins. Their studio operation moved to a more traditional surroundings in 1957, thanks to a partnership with Dearborn Glass Company of Chicago. The Higgins name received national exposure through Dearborn's extensive, and heavily promoted, line of "Higginsware". The line included, in addition to a full range of tableware, everything from lamps and ashtrays, to candleholders and Rondelays.
