Listing Detail Tabs

Here are five rectangular glass ashrays featuring vintage cars and dating to the early 70s. I actually remember people collecting these in the U.K.

Possibly made by Decorative Crafts Inc. from Italy, and possibly Japanese. Ideas?

These are wonderful collectibles of today and tomorrow, despite their associations with tobacco. These items of tobacciana can also be associated with the design 'Limoges'. Dealers like to call these 'trinket dishes'.

Ashton Martin and Fraser Nash 1934 are larger and convex (15x12cm), whereas Mercedes Benz, Rolls Royce and Fiat 24/32 )13x1ocm) are concave and rhomboid in shape.

The etchings of the cars are wonderful, and reflect the automobile ephemera of the era.

There are no chips or cracks or scrapes.

About the seller:

I'm a knowledgeable but not professional enthusiast of collectibles selling largely from a personal collection. I welcome comments and insights in the interest of Trade me community.

I’m away from December 13-15 and will prepare any sales in that time to ship on Monday December 18.

Combining: Combined shipping is possible, usually at the rate of the costliest item. I encourage you to browse and choose more than one item!

Sales: Please contact me within 24 hours and do pay within three working days.

Questions: Do use these to communicate anything that crosses your mind.

Fixed Price Offers: If you want one, do request one. The default is to relist.

Shipping costs: I don't make money from postage/shipping and generally use rates advertised by NZ post, non-tracked for items under $20 (or tracking upgrades are $3). I use Fastway Courier for larger items with shipping over 7.70. For areas Fastway can’t do, like PO Boxes and RDs, we enlist NZ Post Couriers.
