Georgie Georgie!
One great part of ad figure collecting is all the figural ashtrays they made over the years. Years ago companies would give out plaster/chalk ashtrays with the ad figure on them. This one is one of my favorites Georgie Georgie. Who could resist this little guy shouting his name out to you. Under the name is Hoover so I guess he was the pitchman for the company. I have yet to come across any old advertising with this character so any info would be great. Thanks again for dropping by.
