Richard Galef 1954 Duck Shape Ashtray Key Caddy

Certified Price





Posted on September 07, 2017.

Vintage 1950s chrome wire & black metal duck shaped ashtray, the picture of atomic era whimsy . Designed by Richard Galef in 1954.

If you smoke, how fun to have this as your ashtray—if you don’t you can use on your foyer table to corral your keys, or on your dresser top to corral your cufflinks, watches, or jewels. One sold on eBay awhile back for about 100.00; mine is a better deal, and it’s in great vintage condition with minor wear. Could be cleaned up and shined, but I thought it looked great with some patina. There was an eyeball but it is missing.

9-1/2" overall length
6" width
7" tall

Located in Bed-Stuy, or Williamsburg (my studio) on Leonard Street near Scholes. Days are sometimes good; evenings most of the time.

Cash only. I could ship this if you need it elsewhere.

Thanks, Chip
