Frankoma Oil Capital Ashtray

Recommended Posts

Good Morning! While cleaning out my mom's house, I found a Frankoma ashtray with an oil derrick and "Oil Capital of the World" embossed in the bottom. I don't know if it's an old Tulsa antique or what. It's stamped "466" on the bottom side. Any help with a value or origin would be most appreciated!

Thanks!

The 466 ashtray was made in the late 50s, but custom products using that mold may have hung around a bit longer. Frankoma, perhaps more than any other pottery, has done an incredible number of custom product for companies, tourist places, churches, government, etc. Your ashtray is probably worth $10, but might be of more value to someone in the oil industry. It would make a great gift if you have a friend or family in that industry.
