Vintage Amber Trinket Bowl - Glass Ashtray - CSA Souvenir - Czechoslovak Society of America - Fraternal Organization - Imperial Glass

Sorry, this item has sold.

Featured is a great amber glass nostalgic piece. This round trinket bowl or ashtray was a souvenir from the 1959 gathering of the Czechoslovak Society of America (CSA) in Bellaire, Ohio. This heavy piece is about 7 1/2 inches in diameter and about 2 inches deep. It was likely made by Imperial Glass Company, a long-time member of the Bellaire, Ohio community.

The CSA (known now as Fraternal Life) is America’s oldest Fraternal Benefit Society, founded in 1854 in St Louis Missouri, by Czechoslovak immigrants who wanted to provide security for their widows and children upon their death. This piece commemorates their gathering in 1959, and the bowl is embossed "XXIII C.S.A. Get Together Bellaire Ohio."

This piece is in excellent condition, free from any chips or cracks.

I do combine shipping and refund shipping overages in excess of $1.50 (covers shipping materials) above actual cost, I’m not trying to make money off of shipping charges. I strive to ship items no later than the following business day. Items are generally shipped USPS priority mail which includes $50 insurance. All items are carefully packaged. If an item is damaged during shipping, please take pictures and let me know immediately so a claim can be filed with the shipper. If you prefer an alternate shipping method please send me a message to discuss options.

Sometimes Priority Mail shipping is cost prohibitive (especially for those on the West Coast). Send me a message and we’ll see if Flat Rate shipping is possible. Prices for this service is generally about $19 for a “Large” box and about $13.65 for a “Medium” box. Note that USPS Flat Rate boxes aren’t that big, so this might not be an option when purchasing larger items.

I enjoy finding vintage pieces and moving them along to new homes.
