TWO Vintage Girlie Feminine Individual Fine China Ashtrays
The larger one is absolutely perfect. It measures 5" across.
The smaller of the two shows some wear to the gilt trim, otherwise no issues whatsoever.
One says Made in Occupied Japan, one says made in Japan.
Both are beautiful.
Let's talk about ashtrays. They never got any respect. They were the last things to get thrown into the dishwater at the bar (and probably chucked in from five feet away), dropped and beaten, thousands of cigars and cigarettes violently snubbed out in their faces over the years...It was a hard life for the best of them. Now they are either becoming a thing of the past or they are finding newer uses (check appropriate state laws.) They're survivors. There may be a couple of rough spots, but nothing that will hurt you to handle, or wash. They are useful conversation starters, and can be core decor. We assure you that if we're offering them to you, they are (of course) fabulous enough for us to even consider selling them. ~~***Does the shipping cost look off to you?

****************We sell select vintage items. They are not new, and rarely look new. They are, in many cases, older than we are. They have seen life and times. We do not repair or replace parts on any of the items we sell. They came to us in the condition they are now, and are sold as is. When we say an item is in “excellent vintage condition”, we mean just that – it is in excellent condition for its age. We examine our jewelry with a lighted magnifying dental lamp. We are very particular about what we buy and sell, and describe things to the very best of our ability, in a fair and accurate way. Please - closely review the photos and descriptions of the items you wish to purchase, and if you have questions about them, we will gladly answer them prior to your buying.
The photos are part of the description. Scrutinize them.
**ARE WE WRONG? We've been selling vintage goods for a long time, but that doesn't mean we don't make mistakes. There's so much to know about this stuff. If you know that we are wrong about this item, please take the time to let us know. We're humble. We'll take it, and we'll learn. We'll also correct our listing.
Our packing materials may be unsightly, albeit brilliantly effective. We try to reuse as much material as possible from our business. We encourage you to do the same.
WE DO COMBINE SHIPPING. Let us know if you’d like us to calculate it for you! Does the shipping look off? It happens. Contact us. We'll verify it for you.

These minor imperfections often occur, such as: small defects in hand painting, color variations, creases or lines from molds, tiny air bubbles or small debris encased in glass is considered natural and is not going to be scrutinized or considered damage.
