About Alfred Steiner Mens Wear/Furniture
This advertising piece for a St. Louis, Missouri company is currently known only in round marigold ashtrays that are probably from approximately 1935-1940. The lettering around the edge is divided into 3 sections (separated by cigar/cigarette holder indentations on the edge)and contains the company name, the company address, and the product being advertised (Mens Wear or Furniture). In the middle is a holder for a small box of wooden matches. The bottom has a rayed pattern. A similar shape would be the Polo ashtray.
