Square glass ashtray with red and green enamel decoration, from the Masque Room lounge at the Alexandria Hotel.
The Alexandria opened as the first luxury hotel in Los Angeles CA shortly after the turn of the century. This ashtray dates to their post-WWII period, before it became a cheap boxing arena in the 1960s-70s. Recently, the Alexandria has been renovated into a low-rent subsidized apartment facility.
