Old Russian Tea Room Ashtray

$125.00

Oh, how we miss the old, original Russian Tea Room -- the glorious, painting-filled, elegant, samavor-studded, red, gold, light-filled palace, the New York City shrine to the art of vodka drinking. At lunchtime, theater, movie and book agents all chowed down together. Producers, names that appeared in the credits for good productions, dotted the room. Famous people swept in and became instant royalty. There was a sense as you gave your coat in on the left and queued up at the maitre d's stand that many important things might happen in this preserve of glinting caviar, buttery blini, and chilled-to-the-bone vodka.

Icons of hospitality and glamour, ashtrays from tables of the original Russian Tea Room have all but vanished into history. These authentic, well-bred ashtrays were used by the swells who called the RTR home, perhaps while lunching on Chicken Kiev, or while contemplating a Vodka Martini before dinner. Fortunately, a few authentic ashtrays have been rescued by collectors and offered here. Very limited. First come, first served.
