The Mapes Hotel opened in 1947 and was located on the north bank of the Truckee River at Virginia Street in Reno. It closed in 1982.
The ashtray that you see on the right side of my photo can be found in the book "Casinos and Their Ashtrays" by Art Anderson. It shows a value of $10 to $13. The book is dated 1994, that's over 20 years ago and I'm sure the value has gone up since then. The ashtray is 3.75 inches across. It is clear glass with a turquoise center that features the Mapes logo of two cowboys and says 'Mapes Hotel Reno'.
The ashtray on the left is not listed in the book. It measures about 4 inches across. It is clear glass with a white center that features the same Mapes logo of two cowboys and says 'Mapes Hotel Reno'.
These are a great addition for someone who is an ashtray collector, or someone who wants to own a piece of old Reno history.
Buyer to pay $7.95 USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Package postage. NOTE - If you live in or near California, regular Priority Mail may be a better option for you. If so, I'll refund an appropriate amount of the shipping charges. If you'd like an exact quote just send me your zip code and I'll provide that.
I gladly combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single package. It is best if possible to contact me first to let me know which items you'll be purchasing so that I can adjust the shipping charges, otherwise at checkout you will be charged the full shipping fee for each item. Should that happen, and if appropriate to do so, I refund a portion of those charges.
NOTE - With this year's postal increase, all shipping charges increased and international shipping took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
