Clear glass ashtray recovered in 2014 from the S.S. Central America shipwreck. It is 4" diameter, 2" high, 2.25" opening. Six scallop design on top and bottom, though the base is 2.8" diameter. Two "nubs" on the bottom, 5mm in diameter, centered on two adjacent base scallops, one inch apart, which may be air vents. Original striations still present in the bottom. This is part of a significant tobacco- related item group found in trunks and the debris fields. Some chips, no stain, generally excellent for an item that survived a fall of 7,200 feet.
