Reuben's Ashtray

$245.00

Arnold Reuben, a German immigrant and a born showman, opened his restaurant in 1906. He moved its location several times, stopping once at the Ansonia Hotel. From its opening in 1935, an event attended by Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia, until its closing in 1966, Reuben's was at 6 East 58th Street, off Fifth Avenue. Mr. Reuben is credited with inventing the quintessential sandwich of corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss and Russian dressing on grilled buttered rye in 1914 to serve to Annette Seelos who was at the time starring in a silent film opposite Charlie Chaplin.

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.
