Crown Lynn car ashtrays

Post  Maryr on Fri 2 Jun - 10:50

These three ashtray pics were sent to me by Gerda Pentinga, who is trying to find out more about them.  She thinks they were bought in the early 1960s.  They appear to be the same shape as the Hamilton Centennial ashtray of 1964

These ashtrays are all of rare and special cars, and Gerda thinks from memory that there was a set of six. I don't see them anywhere on the site, and Gerda is quite happy for her pics to be put in the gallery. Incidentally, Gerda said she took up collecting Crown Lynn as a means of connecting with her new home when she first came to live in NZ about 12 years ago.

I've been in contact with Gerda, but she didn't share these photos.  I haven't seen them before and they are not the Ardmore Grand Prix ones that I thought they might be.  I did find an old listing on Trade Me for the Fiat ashtray, but there were no photos.  We have a date for that ashtray shape 1963.  They must be rather hard to find I would suggest.  Plus going by other lines there would probably be a series of 6 of these ashtrays.
