The RAY C. BLISS REPUBLICAN PARTY LEADER APPRECIATION ASHTRAY is made of stoneware pottery and glazed in a mustard yellow.  The MASCOT OF THE PARTY, AN ELEPHANT is embossed in the center of bowl in front of an outline of the STATE OF OHIO.  The mascot wears a blanket with the words, OHIO and holds a VICTORY banner in his trunk. 

Along the rim, reads:

The ashtray is in great condition with no chips, crazing or cracks.  The ashtray is 1 ¾” height and the center of the bowl measures 5 ¼” in diameter, and with the rim, 7” at its widest point.
Great commemorative political piece.  A "matching" Ohio Republican Party Ashtray glazed in cranberry red is available for sale in a separate listing.
