    Description

    Ernie's Steak House Dick Tracy Ash Tray (1950s). When Chester Gould visited his daughter Jean while she was attending the University of Missouri, a dinner at Ernie's Steak House inspired him to make a drawing of Dick Tracy and Junior on the wall, praising the establishment's hamburgers. The restaurant eventually used the drawing to create this unique ash tray. A very rare item! This flat, white glazed ash tray measures 6" round, and includes Gould's drawing at the bottom. In Excellent condition. From the collection of Larry Doucet.
