Vintage Schweinfurt Germany Souvenir Ashtray Firebird Phoenix Shield Crest Crown
This vintage ashtray is marked with a sheild/crest of a firebird/phoenix and topped with a crown, with "Schweinfurt" underneath. It is rimmed in gold, with additional gold in the sections where you would place a cigarette. The maker's mark states "Made in Germany" in gilded crossed swords. The crossed sword mark was very common amongst many German/Bavarian porcelain makers, and this mark does not appear to be Meissen.
