Gerald Brown in his 1971 book Collectible Porcelain Insulators on page 65 reports this ashtray. At the time, the ashtray was owned by Wally Gestland of Denver, Colorado. In July 2006 while trying to track down the ashtray, I talked to Mrs. Gestland who said Wally died about 1986 and had sold his insulators over time before that. Wally had collected since about 1956.
