Art Deco Ashtray Stand Restoration Project

I've been on the hunt for an ashtray stand for years and came across this piece at an antique shop about a mile from my house. I did some research on it and found it was made by the Alexander Backer Company (ABCO) in the '40s. ABCO was famous for their decorative figurines. I also found that the company was convicted of "willful infringement for profit of copyrighted figurines."

There is an ash receptacle on either side and another repticle which I believe was intended to hold cigarettes vertically. The rose colored agate on the top is actually a working cigarette lighter, but I put a battery operated LED in it for aesthetic purposes. It took a lot of elbow grease but I'm really happy with the result.
