With over 150 destinations on 6 continents, Air France is truly a global air carrier. The French flag carrier began in 1933 when 5 separate French airlines merged to form Société Air France. These 5 founding airlines had already built extensive networks across Europe, to French colonies in North Africa and further afield. Air France has always been headquartered in Paris, except for the years during World War II when the company temporarily moved its operations to Casablanca, Morocco. 

In June of 1945 all of France's airlines were nationalized and in December of that same year, a decree of the French government granted Air France the management of the entire French air transport network. In 1946, Air France hired its first flight attendants and opened its first air terminal at Les Invalides in central Paris. At that time the network - claimed to be the longest in the world, covering almost 100,000 miles.  Also in 1946, Air France began direct service between Paris and New York. The nearly 20 hour flight made refueling stops in Shannon and Gander. By 1948, Air France operated 130 aircraft, one of the largest fleets in the world.

From the markets of France, we are pleased to present this Vintage Air France Cigar Ashtray. In the center of the tray is a beautifully stylized compass featuring the company's former logo, a stylized winged seahorse. At the top of the tray in a furled banner are the French words Dans Tous les Ciels (In All the Skies), which is an accurate statement given Air France's vast global network. A storied piece for sure, this handsome find shares its pleasing weight and rich character even still, sure to make quite an impression on a coffee table, desk or bar. 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 7" x 7" x 1.25". In very good vintage condition.
