Auden: Railroad Spike Dish By The Big Purple Barn

What's the long and short of it? This listing is for one "Auden" dish that will be handmade to order from antique railroad spikes.

The railroad is a mystical beast built on heavy steel and strong backs. The steam and scream of a passing engine is a great American legacy, one which is celebrated by this ashtray made of twelve antique railroad spikes. Once used to help hold tracks to ties, these spikes have long since been left without a strict purpose. Now they're given new lease on life, giving you a chance to hold part of industrial history in your hands, and have a nice place to throw your pocket knife at the end of the day.

Exterior Dimensions: 2 1/16" tall, 6 1/8" wide
(Every dish is made to order, every railroad spike is different. Dimensions will vary slightly.)
