These were novelty ashtrays sold as souvenirs during the early 1950's. This is one of a series...there were "The Drunk, The Irritated Wife, and the Prostitute" all separately hanging on the same lamppost. Some of the lampposts differed slightly...some had street signs, some had street names, and some, like this one were plain. AND...some had the names of the novelty spot individually painted on the ash tray or on the street sign. This one is about 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide. This one has not been retouched and is in original condition.
