Longchamps "Art Deco" Ashtray

$195.00

Longchamps was a chain of restaurants that was highly popular with "Ladies Who Lunch" in the post-WW II years in New York. There were a number around town, mainly situated around Madison and Fifth. When cheating Fred McMurray's secretary Edie Adams rats him out to his wife in Billy Wilder's "The Apartment," the two women meet at Longchamps.

A number of design elements for the dining rooms were drawn up by New York architect Ely Jacques Kahn, including an Art Deco-inspired "Bakelite" ashtray. Offering one of the rare ashtrays, once found on the tabletops of the venerable Longchamps restaurants, now out of use along with cigarettes, but desirable for its connection to the culture of New York City in the twentieth century.
