Cast Iron wood base. The removable ashtray appears to be pewter or aluminum. Measurements on pictures. I was told that it was used in Bushkill Park Easton PA to collect entrance fees back in the 40’s or 50’s. Not used for intended purpose. So coins in ashtray, dollar bills under. The ashtray seems to made in different pieces not one single piece.

Good morning, Hilton,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Ashtrays are some of the most difficult things to sell well at auction; the use simply deters buyers, even if the piece is unused. I found a similar example selling at auction in the past few years and have put the link below.
Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
A vintage polychromed cast metal (possibly lead) Viking Ship ash tray
probably mid 20th century
approximately 8-9 inches tall by 6 inches wide, on a turned wooden foot.
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
