Ashtray, Brass SwivelAbout this object
This is a brass ashtray with a swivel finish. The top rotates easily to deposit the ash into the collecting cup below, and the pin can be pulled out to make emptying easier. It may well have been designed for use by a pipe smoker who could knock out their pipe bowl on the pin.Maker
