Festival of Britain Ash Tray

Festival of Britain brown glass Ash Tray
Brown glass ash tray
Back of ash tray


Ash trays seem to have been a popular souvenir of the Festival of Britain, presumably because a lot more people smoked at the time. Made of a yellow/brown glass and circular in shape it has a recess in the centre with 3 slots for cigarettes around the edge. It has the Festival logo on the back of the glass.

There is a very slight mark in the glass, which comes from the time it was manufactured. It can just be seen in the photos and runs below the number 19. It is 105mm in diameter and there is no makers mark.
