1930s Dizzy Dean glazed ceramic figural ashtray features the great pitcher in full windup in his Cardinals uniform. "Dizzy Dean" appears on the front of the base for display. "Copyright applied for" is engraved on reverse. The figure is very striking, in white with red accents. A baseball with stitching provides support to the figure.
