This ash tray is a bit of history. The Acapulco Princess was at one time owned by an affiliate of the Howard Hughes corporation, and Howard Hughes was known to stay in its penthouse.

Its companion resort hotel, the Pierre Marques, also depicted on the ashtray, was the beach retreat of J. Paul Getty. Celebrities such as John F. Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor and Aristotle Onassis dined at its restaurant.

The logos depicted on this ashtray are no longer used, but have been replaced by the Fairmont logo. The Fairmont chain bought the hotels in the late 1990s.

This glass ash tray has a nice shine. Very few shallow, minor surface scratches on the bottom, but the appearance is not marred. Any other marks I find are those typical of molded class. Both the clarity of the glass and the very nice condition of the logos and inscription indicate that, if used at all, this piece was hand washed. It is a nice piece for display as part of your collection or for daily use.


3 1/4 inches square and 1 inch high.
