Commodore Hotel Ashtray$69.00
42nd Street's Grand Hyatt Hotel was originally the Commodore Hotel, built in 1920 and named after Commodore Vanderbilt, who built Grand Central. At the Commodore in 1948, Richard Nixon, heading the House Un-American Activities Committee, confronted accused spy Alger Hiss with his accuser, Whittaker Chambers. Earlier, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald were thrown out of here after being thrown out of the Biltmore.
Once icons of hospitality and glamour, ashtrays are part of Americana that now belongs to the past. Offering an ashtray from the golden age of glamorous smoking, now out of use along with cigarettes, but desirable for its connection to the culture of New York City in the twentieth century.
