      Standing Lady Brass Ashtray

      Hello, I was hoping I can get a little help with this item my husband and I picked up at an estate sale. It is a brass? ashtray w/ a lady standing at the back of it. She appears to be holding out her dress or cape at her sides and wearing a large headdress. There are 3 sections in the ashtray for holding cigarettes or cigars. It measures 7.5" tall and weighs nearly 4lbs.  If anyone knows who the maker is, name, cost, etc I would really appreciate the info. Thank you.

      Ashtray

      Hi Lisa, It's a nice vintage piece, possibly brass but at 4 lbs that seems a little heavy for brass. The design is unusual, but the quality of the workmanship is fairly pedestrian, even crude. I think that if I had it for sale, I'd be asking about $50-60. Gary
