Bastogne Sherman Tank Ashtray
A beautifully detailed Bastogne 'Sherman Tank' ashtray. Bastogne is a World War two time warp where visitors to the Belgian town can see evidence of the wartime Americans everywhere. It was in Bastogne and the Ardennes that the American forces were involved in heavy fighting. In the town plaza sits a Sherman tank, mounted as a monument and all along the curving roads into and out of the town are Sherman tank turrets functioning as route markers. This is an early 1950s ashtray, finely done, commemorating the town's Sherman and the American forces that fought in the town and surrounding area in the latter part of WW2. Beautiful item, approx 6 inches diameter.
