This old Smokey Bear piece is called a Snuff It. The popular bear known for preventing wild fires is made of plastic and was meant to be used in your automobile. In the bottom of the base is a magnet so it would attach to the dash (this was when the dashboards were metal and not plastic!). On the top of Smokey's ranger hat it reads; Prevent Forest Fires and Smokey says Snuffit. The hole in the top is where you would have put out your cigarette. On the bottom is the original paper label with instructions. It was made by the Plasti-Craft Corp. of San Gabriel, California. These were quite popular in the 1950's and early 1960's. This IS NOT a reproduction, this is a vintage piece.
It measures about 1 ½” high by 1 ½” wide and it is in very good condition with minimal wear. It doesn’t look as though a cigarette was ever snuffed out in it. The paper label is lightly soiled. The magnet is intact as shown in the last photo.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
