My daughter and I claimed this item that was set out for trash pick-up. The owner used it as a(n) large ash-tray.
We started washing it up with a very abrasive sponge and noticed a symbol on the front? So a quizzical 11 year old insisted I google it! I clean the bottom looking for some other markings to use in my quest. Trying to research it as a “spittoon” and several hours later has lead me here.
I have since found it is either a fake or it’s from Birminingham (anchor), I have not been able to figure out the “crown” and assume maybe it was produced after 1975ish due to the lack of a Makers’ Mark.
So can anyone help us out?
