View:  Main (Large)
Lot 208: Ashtray  Color: Dark Cobalt Blue  Description: Finely crafted by hand in a stunning Dark Cobalt Blue, this ashtray is nearly 5" wide and 4 1/2" tall. These three items were believed to have been made at the Victor Insulators company around 1915. On Sunday, July 22, 1917, the Democrat and Chronicle (Rochester, NY) listed the people who were drafted from Victor, NY. Rocco Commisso’s name is included. His draft card listed his residence as Victor, NY and his place of work as Victor Insulators Inc, Victor NY. His signature on the draft card matches the signature on these items very closely. This is pretty strong evidence tying these pieces to Rocco Commisso at Victor Insulators. It is highly likely these are one-of-a kind items. An amazing group of go-withs! Excellent condition!
