Burn The Axis Ashtray Boxed Set

The Kemper-Thomas Company

This is a boxed set of three anti-axis ashtrays. Each ashtray portrays hitler, mussolini, and tojo as a skunk, vulture and rat respectively. These ashtrays demonstrate the American propaganda machine in action. By portraying the leaders of the axis as animals we consider to be vile and disgusting, we learned to avoid, hate, and to desire to kill them. The paint is applied to the bottom of each ashtray. Consequently scratches and paint chips are common. Finding a boxed set with the glass and paint intact is a jewel. These ashtrays are borderline uncommon. Finding a boxed set is extremely uncommon. A significant portion of the overall value is in the box.

Estimated value: $ 325.00
