FRENCH LINE CGT RARE ART DECO ETCHED GLASS ASHTRAY

french line ashtrayThis beautiful and rare CGT French Line ocean liner vintage ashtray is made of glass with a nice stylized etched image in the center. The Art Deco era ashtray has a simple and stylish look, and it is quite heavy and impressive. It was definitely used and has some chips along the bottom rim (a couple of spots are flaws/bubbles in the glass from the manufacturing process). We always joked that the damage happened during a bad storm at sea, and you are welcome to use the same story...who knows, it might be true. The ashtray measures 5 inches in diameter and sits 1 inch tall. The photos don't show the design very well; it is actually crisper and clearer in person. It looks just like classic etched glass with no fading or loss of detail.
