PR. ART DECO STERLING BALANCING CIGAR ASHTRAYS - S. Kirk & Son. Ashtray is uniquely designed to balance a cigar/cigarette on its holder so that ashes fall into the tray as it burns down allowing the smoker to leave it unattended without worry of damage to furniture or fire, Ashtrays are 4" in diameter and 1" tall. Obviously designed when cigars were a bit shorter.
The 'S. Kirk & Son' mark was used 1846-1861 and again briefly in 1924 (Art Deco Period). Clearly, the design falls into the Art Deco era.
