This is not mine, and I have no picture of it, alas, but friends have a brass ashtray that was awarded to a salesperson for meeting or exceeding sales goals at a Packard dealership.

If memory serves me correctly, it was awarded in the 1940s.

DISCLAIMER: I did not realize the age of this thread! I posted almost the same comment on it in 2013, about the same item! You're experiencing deja vu...

Several years ago I purchased a desk set with an aerial image of the Packard Plant cast into the base and mounted with a Wahl-Eversharp fountain pen made of rosewood. I have seen only 2 others.

Base is marked Whitehead-Hoag and the red hex is in cloisonne'.

Wowowow!!! Gorgeous stuff Roger! Love the pen set.

Here are some of my Packard keys collected over the years... I have more keys and fobs. The keys in the upper right of the photo are original Packard factory keys that would have come new with your 1950s Packard. Fob with these postwar keys is prewar. Off to the left center is a little child's Packard service ring...

Added detailed shot of NOS original Packard keys...

And fob you got when taking delivery of your new postwar Packard at the Grand Boulevard plant in Detroit...

And... while Packard Motor Car Company had no hand in making these, here is my 1941 Schwinn Packard Autocycle DeLuxe bicycle. It was top of the line in 1941 and came with front and rear drum brakes, twin headlights, built-in lighted speedometer in handlebar, electric horn and pewter Cormorant ornament. It looks similar to postwar models bit is very different in many details.

Also some NOS prewar Packard bicycle headbadges from various manufacturers.

Or how about this stained glass panel??? The donut chaser and hexagon are made of mirror glass to appear as chrome. Photo really doesn't do the colors justice. Glass is all hand-blown ancient stuff.

I have a stained Packard glass as well. Believe my Grandfather made it, but not sure.

This pewter bowl was a gift to President Alvan Macauley and is now on its way to the PPG archives.

I found this combo key chain-coin holder-ice scrapper many years ago in my 1955 400. This was our local Packard dealer in the 1950ís.
