These would be lovely tea bag holders or butter pats today,
but these are actually Mad Men era individual hand painted milk glass ashtrays
– Made for Card Parties ( Bridge or Canasta, etc. ) a Card Party luncheon in the 1950s to early 1960 when everyone smoked. Everyone had a tiny ashtray while playing cards, or at club luncheons.
These are lovely. They measure 2 ½ inches square – White Milk Glass with Hand Painted Blue Flowers with Greenery in the Center. The edges have tiny hobnails that are opalescent in bright light. Please see the individual photos for the best view of the lovely edge hobnails.
Conditon: Very Good. No chips. No Cracks. The Hand painted décor is still lovely and bright.
These would have originally had a foil or paper label on the back indicating the maker. These labels are no longer present, but I did see something similar that was made by Kemple Glass.
Well packaged, these will weigh approx 1 pound. Can send Parcel or Priority. No Handling Fees.
Items come from various estates, sales, etc. I cannot guarantee that they have lived a smoke free or pet free life. I also use recycled boxes in shipping. Your items arrive well protected and it is good for the environment.
