Fostoria | American | 5" Ash TrayOut of all the smoking accessories that Fostoria produced in the American pattern, it is this Ash Tray that is the largest.  The official Fostoria documents state the measurement at 5-inches.  My Ash Trays; however, are about 4¾” – when measured from side-to-side.  It has a squarish shape, with rounded corners.  The bottom of the piece has a nice star-burst design, and flares outward from the bottom to the top edge.

The 5″ Ash Tray is a heavy specimen, and is crafted beautifully.  As far as smoking accessories go, this piece is definitely one of the most gorgeous ash trays I have ever seen.  It displays a perfectly-sized indentation for a cigarette to rest in each of the four corners.  Due to its weight, size, and allowance of four cigarettes to be used at one time, this is the perfect ash tray to be used by multiple smokers and/or guests.

Even while many of us don’t smoke today, one can still appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of these items.  Use them for alternate purposes, and enjoy them … for a complete Fostoria American collection would not be complete without them.
