Large Vintage Copper Railway Platform Ashtrays Description
These are very unusual, old, large standing ashtrays dating from a bygone era when smoking was commonplace. They either would have been found on railway platforms or in a railway station for commuters to use to extinguish cigarettes while they waited for a train. They’re solid copper and have a particulary interesting shape so in addition to appealing to collectors of railway memorabilia they’d make oustanding decor pieces for a variety of settings.
Whilst these ashtrays are functional items they’re far too attractive and interesting to be used for their intended purpose. With their design and history they’re probably more suited for use as decorative pieces.
