Mamma Leone's Ashtray

$95.00

Best known of the early Italian enterprises in New York, Mamma Leone's was founded by Luisa Leone on West 34th Street in 1906. Her recipe for success was "Give them good food and plenty of it. They'll come back." At its peak Leone's boasted of eight lavish dining rooms seating 1,200. The restaurant remained in the family until 1959 when it was sold to a restaurant syndicate, retaining the name. Subsequent moves to different locations eventually led to the famed restaurant's demise in 1994.

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.
