The history of Nordic Ware may have begun with the Bundt Pan. But over the years they have made products at their St. Louis Park factory that did not stand the test of time. Once such item is a mid century modern aluminum ashtray. The one I have can be described as a shallow dish with three evenly spaced spheres with notches cut out to secure the cigarette. The design of this ashtray is beautiful in symmetry with clean lines and balance.
