Art & Inspiration Hot rod ashtrays....see what I just found....

  1. Went downtown to an antique mall this morning thinking I would pick up some more Lesney/Matchbox toys I saw at one guy's booth. I had gotten some from him already and wanted more. NOPE! All gone. Damn. Should have bought them all at such a good price. I did see THIS, though. At first I thought it was someone's ashtray project. THEN I turned it over and found the "NEWCOMB, INC. ROSELLE, N.J." on the bottom in the glazing! WHAT?? I had no idea this existed. Newcomb usually made vases and plates and stuff like that. This was a GREAT discovery for me. Turns out it is quite rare and I paid the same price that I was prepared to spend on the L/M toy cars. It even has big & littles on it. SCORE! I LOVE THIS THING!

  3. I agree. I was only able to find a couple of others and it said they are from the 1940's.

    I'm certainly no expert on pottery, but I do like Antique Road Show and I recall "Rosedale" & "Newcombe" (not sure of spellings) pottery being collectible and some vases bringing stupid money. Might want to check it out..

  6. I have a couple of these and I agree they are from the 40's and are quite rare as you said.

    One of mine was a souvenir from the national Soap Box Derby in Akron and has no makers mark, but looks to be the same Newcomb mold.

    I don't believe DSCF1577 (Copy).JPG they would give out ashtrays as souvenirs today.

    you made a great find.
