Waldorf Astoria -- Vintage Copper Ashtray

The ashtray measures approximately 2 1/2 x 3 1/8" and has "The Waldorf Astoria" printed in raised letters under the right bottom of the building. Enough of the patina has been cleaned to reveal that the ashtray appears to be copper, but the new owner will decide whether to continue cleaning and remove the heavy patination from this old ashtray or to leave it "as is" 'wearing' its vintage. 


This pair of flow blue butter pats have gold trim extending into the pattern. Light crazing on the pats and slight discoloration suggest they are old, but there are no “straw” marks on the bottoms. The butter pats are approximately 3 1/8” in diameter and are in good condition, with no cracks and only minor flakes/chips on the bottom rims (see second photograph). The gold trim has moderate wear which does not distract from the beauty of these butter pats. 

Sterling Flask Sheffield 1924 by James Dixon & Sons

This sterling pocket flask is hallmarked Sheffield 1924 and was manufactured by James Dixon and Sons. It has a large, ¾ pint capacity (British pint = 19.2 ounces U.S.) and contains 15 ounces of sterling silver. The flask measures approximately 4¾ x 7¼ (top of cap) x 1¼” thick. The cork-lined cap is hinged and opens with a quarter turn. The case has a beautifully tooled design; the cartouche has been monogrammed with the letters E. M. L. Of particular significance is the fact that the flask is “correct” in all respects, with the British lion passant properly stamped on all parts (i.e., flask body, cap, and both pieces of the hinge). There are no dents or deep scratches. The flask has been lightly cleaned for inspection before offering at auction.
