Festival of Britain Ash Tray

Festival of Britain Ash tray
Close up of logo


This is a very nice clear glass ash tray produced to celebrate the Festival of Britain. It is domed in shape with a circular recess just off centre with 2 slots for cigarettes. It has the Festival logo in the glass pressing.

The shape is very simple but I think it is meant to be based on the Dome of Discovery, designed by Ralph Tubbs. 125mm in diameter. There is no makers mark. Unfortunately I am useless at photographing glass and so the photos do not do it justice.

Price 37.50 SOLD. UK postage & packing 3.30.
