Space Age ashtray
« on: July 29, 2013, 07:44:41 PM »
Found this mid-century gem at a local antique mall today for $8.00. It was made by Space Age Products in Downey, CA in the early 1960s. It's made of melamine and looks like a flying saucer. I'm guessing the four holes around the outside were to hold extra cigarettes?

I just did a little research, and it looks like Space Age Products is still in business, and still making this ashtray! According to their website it was invented in 1954.

If I smoked, I'd buy one right now!
What this country needs is a good $5 parts clock.

I don't smoke, but I bought it anyway. :)

Have one on hand for your smoking friends! ;)
