nice collections out there! I'm sorry to say that right now I only have one rather beat up ashtray to share:

and the back side

I forgot to mention that the pineapple tips are all chipped on this tray.

GREAT collections everyone! I also only have one ashtray, but when I saw it, I couldn't pass it up. It's from Trader Vic's 50th anniversary.

Great Collections! Seeing as my wife is the smoker in the house, she prefers the Hotel Room pilfered ashtrays as they are easier to clean. But I do have this Coco Joes out in the Lounge. The finish is a bit beat up, and I'm tempted to mask off the jewel and give it a few coats of flat black BBQ paint. But as far as my favorite ashtray, it has to be this baby gator number. Once again, a gift to my dad from his favorite aunt. Unfortunatly it was kept on an open porch for a few years, and shows some wear & tear. Again, not Tiki in the classical sense, but certainly fits in.

treasure craft ashtray - no markings to a specific establishment, not terribly exciting, but relevant

There are just so many great pieces out there! Thanks for sharing some of your collections. Here is a few pieces from my collection:



This ashtray is from "Don The Beachcomber" at the Hotel Sahara, Las Vegas.



These two are from the "Bali Hai" that is still located on Shelter Island in San Diego, CA.



This seldom scene guy is from the old "Al Williams Papagayo Room" that was located at the Tonga Room in San Francisco during the 1940's.



The one on the left is a cool one from "The Tropics Motor Hotel, Seattle, Washington". The one on the right is from "John Ascuaga's Nugget Hotel/Casino" where Trader Dicks is in Reno, Nevada.



An awesome Tiki face one that looks very much like a Westwood style Tiki but only has a small blue and white "Made In Japan" sticker on the reverse.



The one on the left is a good old "Kon Tiki Ports" ashtray in the shape of a pineapple. It was designed by Steve Crane Associates and has a black and gold foil label on the reverse that says Japan and has what looks to be a H and F in a circle. The one on the right is an older frosted glass one that features a picture of the Kon Tiki expedition. It has no markings but I am guessing it probably came out of the museum in Norway.



Here are the five Trader Vic's all together. What I always hate is that when you think you have them all, you see another one somewhere! These ashtrays feature the same characters that are on the vintage Trader Vic menus. Not marked on the bottom but a couple of these do have the small oval blue and white Made in Japan labels.



Not really a ashtray but a pretty cool way to display your matchbooks! An unmarked ceramic shell dish with a nice paint job.



This one is made of metal and features a Maori carving from New Zealand.

Thanks for looking!!!
