Rosoff's Ashtray

$165.00

Max Rosoff came to the United States from Russia as an orphan at the age of twelve. He began his career as a druggist's helper and then became a salami slicer at an East Side (Manhattan) delicatessen, sleeping on a cot in the store to save money. He opened his first restaurant on Graham Avenue in Brooklyn, New York at the age of nineteen. In 1905 he moved his establishment to 6th Avenue (Manhattan), opposite the Hippodrome Theatre, New York City. He moved again in 1918 to a site formerly occupied by the Metropole Hotel, building a three-story restaurant, frequented by theatergoers. Rosoff's closed in 1981.

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.
