1954 American Nurses Convention Ashtray

Remember when smoking was considered chic and good for certain ailments? Even Doctors and Nurses were promoting the use of cigarettes by both men and women. It's unthinkable today that souvenirs from the 1954 American Nurses Convention in Chicago would include this ashtray! It's about 6", in perfect condition (I guess nobody thought smoking was really healthy!) and shows a picture of the Conrad Hilton where the convention took place. Available at Paradise Valley Antique Mall Booth 75.

Stanford Indians Football Mascot Glasses

This weeks item is an extremely rare set of Libbey Glasses with the early Stanford Indians mascot. The mascot was banned in the 1970’s and the football team's name was changed to Stanford Cardinal (not Cardinals!). I've not seen these glasses anywhere else. Asking $120 for set of six.

Vintage Japanese Sleeping Hotei with a Naughty Secret



The Hotei is the Japanese god of contentment and happiness and outside of Japan is often called the laughing Buddha. When awake, he always has a smiling face, bald head and big belly. He is the patron saint of bartenders and restauranteurs. But this Hotei has a secret.. perhaps he is dreaming about the naughty figures hidden underneath him.  Asking $70

This 1993 signed plaster statue of Roman god Bacchus was probably a souvenir from Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. He stands about 12" tall and still has the original Caesars tag. Would look great in a wine cellar, bar or rec room. Asking $65.
