Gauloises Longues

$45.00

Description

Jean-Paul Sartre smoked them, as did Albert Camus, Serge Gainsbourg, and George Orwell. There could not be a more classic throwback to the romantic idyll of Paris. Between World War I and World War II, smoking of Gauloises in France was considered patriotic and an affiliation with French "heartland" values. This ashtray's baby blue hue comes from the branding of the non-filtered Gauloises Caporals - which also inspired the 1969 film: Les Gauloises Bleues.

Features

Ashtray measures approximately 0.75" tall and 4" round.
