Mid-Century Modern Pal-Bell Ashtray

Pal-Bell Ashtray

Pal-Bell Ashtray

Stylish simplicity highlights this brass Mid-Century Modern Pal-Bell ashtray. Clean, modernist lines are juxtaposed with the rustic feel of the black hammered interior and signature Pal-Bell green patina-tone turquoise accents. Ultra-high quality craftsmanship from Israel coupled with a weapon-like heaviness makes this a wonderfully understated piece. We are under the assumption that this bowl-shaped piece is based on the curved ridges around the rim. However, the design camouflages its purpose, and it looks lovely just sitting on a coffee table or mantle as a decorative piece. A really interesting aspect of this Pal-Bell ashtray is its tonal quality. Just tap it with any hard object (like a pencil, etc.) and it rings like a well-crafted bell with a nice tone and long sustain! This is truly a beautiful example of 20th century Israeli metal ware, an unbelievably stylish piece for collectors of Judaica, or simply one of the nicest ashtrays you will find anywhere! It measures 4 5/8 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall. Pal-Bell manufactured a large number of decorative pieces for the home. Check below for examples of finely crafted brass Pal-Bell ashtrays. read more

WILSON JONES HUMMER VINTAGE OFFICE PAPER PUNCH

wilson jones hummer hole punch

The Wilson Jones Hummer...a vintage office classic

This vintage Wilson Jones Hummer 3-hole punch is heavy-duty and highly desirable. The Wilson Jones Hummer has three fully adjustable punches and cuts clean 3/8 inch holes through up to 20 sheets of paper at a time. The platform includes a raised embossed ruler guide and an additional slide-out ruler/paper guide. The unit is equipped with a steel tray punched hole collector that that snaps into place underneath. This weighty piece of Machine Age office equipment has a classic industrial gray enamel coating and looks great just sitting on the desk.  The base plate dimensions are 10 5/8 inches x 5 3/4 inches.  This particular model had been recently oiled and was in very good, clean, smooth-working condition. Showing only faint wear and no rust or corrosion, this Wilson Junes Hummer 3 hole punch sold the first week.  We have sold three Hummers so far, and always have our eyes peeled for them. Made in the USA, the Wilson Jones Hummer 3-hole punch is built to withstand decades of use...really! They aren't the easiest to find, but they do show up on eBay now and then, and usually for less than the cost of an ugly "modern" Chinese model from the local office supply store! Check below to see if there are any Wilson Jones Hummers for sale now! read more
