Tavern on the Green Ashtray

$145.00

The rural Victorian Gothic structure now known as Tavern on the Green was built in 1870 to house the sheep that grazed in Central Park's Sheep Meadow. It served admirably in that capacity until 1934, when legendary Parks Commissioner Robert Moses decided the building had a higher calling -- that of a restaurant. Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia opened the restaurant with a brass key and, in the company of a proud Mr. Moses.

Once icons of hospitality and glamour, ashtrays are part of Americana that now belongs to the past. Offering an authentic (pre-Warner Leroy) Tavern on the Green 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.
