Jeweler Unknown

This is a very small and very shallow silver ashtray, yet the Navajo silversmith took extreme care in making it and applying an appropriate design. There is a much detail in the stamped designs as there would be on a larger one.  

Condition: this navajo-sterling-silver-ashtray-stamped-designs is in very good condition

Provenance: from the extensive collection of silver objects from a client in Washington, DC
