Set of Two RARE 'Old English Reproduction' Vintage Silverplate Ashtrays
Very pretty set of two 'Old English Reproduction' silver-plated ashtrays, made by Benedict-Proctor Mfg. Company. Maker's stamped hallmark features a triple banner that reads, "Old English Reproduction | B.P | E.P. on Copper | B.M. Mounts" that's presented with a 'genie' teapot, followed by the numbers 92-45. While OER products are ubiquitous, these ashtrays are not so easily found. In fact they're quite rare, with just one other one found on eBay at the time of this posting. Age is unknown but assumed to be between the 1920s to 1960s.
Dimensions: 5" x 3½" x 1" tall. Each weighs about 4oz.
CONDITION: Overall very nice with little wear to the silver; nice patina & tarnish. It's entirely possible that they were never used. No dings/dents with just light scratches, but there is some oxidation in tiny places. Ashtrays have not been cleaned or polished.
