Possibly Asian silver ashtray

Postby gluepot » Fri Jun 07, 2013 7:14 pm

I'm new to the forum and looking for some help in identifying the origin of this well used silver ashtray, please. It was inherited from Dutch grandparents, and I know that my great-uncle worked in the Dutch East Indies from c.1909 to 1920, so it could conceivably have belonged to him at one time.

Many thanks for any help. Regards,

Hi Brett,

Welcome to the Forum.

If it helps further your research, there are several Dutch East Indies firms listed in this topic:
