Customer Question

I have a dark orange glass ashtray, about the size of a small dinner plate. It is very heavy. It is inscriped : "To Steve" On the second line it says "WH Blenko: and on the third line it says "4-23-65". Steve was my father. He was a smoker at that time. It doesn't look as if it was ever used as an ash tray or anything else. I have it set out as a decorative piece, not an ashtray. It is in perfect conditon. I question the value? thank you.

A mid-century modern Blenko glass ashtray from the 1960's has a value of $30 to $40 retail.
