This is a Silver ashtray made by Gebrüder Hepp Pforzheim of Germany. It's age and origin are self-evident. It's marked 90 in the small box next to maker's mark in photo which I believe means 90% silver content. Condition is good with some wear to heavy silver. The base measures 5 1/2" by 3 1/2" and it stands 4 1/4" tall. This rare and valuable ashtray goes on the auction block with a modest opening bid and NO RESERVE.

Items that substantially match the description but NOT the buyer's expectations MAY NOT be returned.
I make every effort to describe items accurately and completely and to be conservative in my claims. Some items, like auto stereo components may NOT be returned once the package has been opened and items described as NEW and that qualify for manufacturer's warranty may NOT be returned but should be delivered to manufacturer or manufacturer's authorized warranty service facility for repair in the event of failure during the warranty period. If you request it, I will furnish a retail bill of sale to support your warranty claim.
I NEVER charge "handling charges" or any other bogus added fees or Sales Tax. My "shipping" charges DO include cost of packing material and are averaged so a few buyers pay less than my actual cost, and a few somewhat more.
Charges for lower 48 by my choice of delivery method are ...
