J.C. Newman has announced a new accessory for sale, the Vintage Ashtray, handcrafted and inspired by the legendary Stork Club in New York. The new ceramic, hand-painted ashtrays have already begin shipping to their account across the nation.
When the swanky Stork Club opened in Manhattan in 1929, it was a place for movie stars, professional athletes, and politicians to be seen. The Stork Club was a place my grandparents, Stanford and Elaine Newman, frequented in New York. Every time celebrities were photographed at the Stork Club, the famous Stock Club ashtray was on the table in front of them. I have created this Vintage Ashtray to celebrate the century-old legacy of the Stork Club and J.C. Newman Cigar Co., the oldest family-owned premium cigar company in America.

The Ashtray measures ten inches in diameter and features stamped, raised lettering that reads “J.C. NEWMAN CIGAR CO., TAMPA, FLA., 1895.” The MSRP is $50.
