Palm Restaurant Ashtray

$165.00

The original Palm, opened in 1926 by Pio Bozzi and John Ganzi, consisted of one room at 837 Second Avenue, then it expanded to the second room and eventually to the second floor before opening across the street. The tradition of covering the walls with caricatures of notables and celebrities started when John and Pio had no money to decorate. In a twist on the old saying "sing for your supper," local newspapermen would draw a cartoon in exchange for a plate of spaghetti.

Once icons of hospitality and glamour, ashtrays are part of Americana that now belongs to the past. Offering an ashtray from the original Palm on New York's Second Avenue, now out of use along with cigarettes, but desirable for its connection to the culture of New York City in the twentieth century.
