Very unusual miniature sterling silver Silent Butler in an ash tray form. This piece is marked 950 which is 95% silver and generally 950 was used for jewelry. Extremely fine and deep chasing and an area for a monogram. Probably used in fine homes during parties so the guest could roam around and not dump ashes in unwanted places. A good use would also be as a pill box. The base indicates it has been used a lot.
