Cigar Band Ashtray
This is an unusually fine example of a cigar band ashtray.
Creating these objects was a favorite pastime for children and
adults at time when there were few entertainments. A gentleman
wearing a top hat and overcoat with fur lapel marked "Hoffman
House Bouquet Cigar" occupies the center of this piece. The
phrase "Has Stood the Test for Years" is underneath.
He is surrounded by bands from The Hilson Co. New York Hoffman
House Bouquet, La Belle Creole, Prince George, and Benefactor.
There is no felt backing on this ashtray. It is in very nice condition.
Approximately 5.25" in diameter. (Stock number003cigash3)
