Vintage Pink Glass Ashtray
Flamingo Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas
When I saw this wonderfully kitschy pink glass ashtray, I couldn’t resist it. In the center is the great Flamingo Las Vegas logo, with a standing pink flamingo, surrounded by 15 raised bubbles (which I think would hold your cigarette, but which also would make a nice candle holder).
This souvenir of Las Vegas is made in Mexico (embossed mark on the bottom, see adjusted photo). It is in the style of Depression-era pink glass, with a marvelous art deco flair.
The piece is 4-7/8 inches wide. It is in very good to excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, hairlines, creases, and little sign of use or wear.
