Souvenir Friday- El Zocalo Ash Tray

About 6 months ago I posted images of an outdoor market area in Frontierland. This area was known as the Mexican Village and also as El Zocalo park. Here is an image of that area as it looks in Disneyland 2007:

One of the souvenirs that was sold there was this Mexican sombrero shaped ashtray. The ashtray does come in a couple of colors, having owned a yellow one in addition to this green one. All have the Mexican painting of cacti on them. The name on the brim is part of the ceramic design as is the Walt Disney Productions on the bottom. I have seen other sombrero's marked for hotels in Baja California and Mexico.

Fun souvenir! Love these relics from early Disneyland. This does look like the kind of thing you could have bought in Tijuana (except that it has the Disneyland imprint on it that makes it extra cool)!

The green sombrero ashtray you have posted is cool. I never seen one. I have a tan colored one with the same words but different artwork. Mine has what looks like an indian kneeling in front of a different cactus. My sombrero ashtray is slightly different in shape (the cone of the hat looks to be shorter and wider on mine). Obviously handmade!
