William J. Campbell

W.J. Campbell is known as the designer of this smoking stand. Two versions of the stand are presented here, both follow the patent drawing. We have seen other climax ash stands with various arrangements of the support pods, size of the drinks holder, and style of the ash receiver. Some have an emblem from a railroad as many were used on smoking cars. As far as we can tell this is Campbell’s only contribution to American Art Deco Furniture.
