Thrift Store Score: Brass and Marbles

I found these awesome Fisher "Jewel Trays"  in a little country thrift store in the outskirts of Suffolk. They were patented in the 30's and i think served as ashtrays, coasters, and tip trays at bars or restaurants. They are hammered brass with marbles around the edge. I have seen these priced individually anywhere from 20 bucks and up, depending on the color and types of marbles used. I got these as a set for 2 bucks! SCORE!!!!! They look awesome with the rest of my brass collection, which is mostly stuff from India, China, and Japan.
