The chips in the hat make it worth a lot less then $100. May be worth $25 just because it is probably one of a kind.

I like it , yeah for sure. But that crack going across it has my attention. It's on it's way to becoming a two-piece. :cigar:
That may have held little themed S&P shakers.

As is, that's something I'd find at GoodWill for $5 .. That's where I find my funky "ash trays".
I have a ceramic spoon rest, 70's butter dish, and a flat tea candle holder that parks a cigar quite well because it's shaped like a kids flip-flop.

Thanks for sharing !

That's a really good tip. There's plenty of them around here. And I've seen a few second hand stores too. I always try to stop in when funds allow and even in my travels out and about too. You really never know what you'll find.
Don't just look for antique ash trays. Yard sale / Goodwill re-purposing for the cigar hobby is great.
Some of the old time things like butter dish trays make a great cigar tray.
I got an old 70's ceramic soup spoon holder for $2, similar to below.
Excellent cigar service appliance I use all the time. Think about it.

That probably would've been the last thing to use for an ashtray!!! But now that you mentioned it I guess it's more so thinking outside the box..
