Nathan's Famous of Coney Island Ashtray

$125.00

Nathan's began as a nickel hot dog stand in Coney Island in 1916 and bears the name of co-founder Nathan Handwerker, who started the business with his wife, Ida. Handwerker, an employee of Feltman's German Gardens, was encouraged by singing waiters Eddie Cantor and Jimmy Durante to go into business in competition with his former employer.

Nathanís popularity was almost instantaneous, and in its earliest days had legendary characters such as Al Capone and Cary Grant as regular customers. It gained its first international exposure when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt served Nathanís Famous hot dogs to the King and Queen of England in 1939. Later, Roosevelt had Nathanís hot dogs sent to Yalta when he met with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin. Years later, Nelson Rockefeller, Governor of New York, stated that, ďNo man can hope to be elected in his state without being photographed eating a hot dog at Nathanís Famous.

Offered is an original ashtray from Nathan's Famous of Coney Island.
