Moskowitz & Lupowitz Restaurant Ashtray

$169.00

The restaurant (where "the finest Jews come to eat") was founded in 1909 by Romanian immigrants (Joseph Moskowitz was a child prodigy on the cymbalom and went on to a somewhat illustrious music career). It was known as a sophisticated hotspot -- the tables were covered in linen, the waiters wore black ties -- and thus became a favorite of Yiddish actors like Milton Berle, Eddie Cantor, and Sid Caesar.

Performers from the then east-village (Jewish) theatres would re-do their stage acts there to the strings of the roaming violinist, who would walk from table to table taking requests.

Offered is a memento of a visit to Moskowitz & Lupowitz, a genuine "bakelite" ashtray.
