Lot 6: 1970s Translucent Blue Glass Ashtray from Elvis Presley's Desk at Graceland
October 29, 2016
Memphis, TN, USALive Auction
Many a small-tipped cigar was extinguished by Elvis in this very 1970s clear blue ashtray that sat upon his upstairs desk, just outside his bedroom. Gifted, surely on the spur of the moment, to Sam Thompson (as detailed in the accompanying LOA), the receptacle is a simple but personal artifact from within Graceland. The ashtray measures approximately 6 1/2 inches (16.51 cm) in width. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
Condition Report: The ashtray appears very clean with only a few very small chips along the inner edge, near mint condition overall.
