What a fantastic piece of nostalgia! Associated Reporters, Inc., a court reporting firm located in New Orleans since 1957 celebrated their 5th Anniversary in business with this handsome looking ashtray made from New Orleans’ own Pearson Sales Company. The firm is presently in its 61st year of business!

The ashtray boasts the first five proud years (1957-1962) says Associated Reporters across the center with a steno-graph picture, all in a very retro looking style in black ink.
The gilded trim around the edge of the ashtray is a good bit worn but the writing and picture is crystal clear. No chips, cracks, grazing, cigarette stains.
The bottom of the ashtray simply says Pearson Sales Company New Orleans in black ink.
It measures 6 3/4″ in diameter.
If you have connections to Associated Reporters, Pearson Sales Company or just love vintage tobaccobilia or New Orleans, you must have this extremely rare item!
