In 1963 those ashtrays were 30 to a carton, 20lbs per carton, and $9.67 for the lot.  I would think they just bought them by the case and sold them as promotional items with the enamel and company logos.  Those look mainly local to Roesch.

Also, just a shot in the dark, but some of those enameled sets look like premium sets, especially the brown set with the included stew pot.  Did the enameling company do something unexpected.... and cut the handles off, enamel the handle and then reattach via the tab?  Would there have been production challenges that made something like that viable?  Or, might BSR have made those with a detachable handle, (and with little recollection due to limited production), but designed
for the enameling process?

All excellent questions to try to find the answers to, Tommy. Smiley

I find the older speckled enamels even more intriguing... Smiley

I'd think Roesch did this for themselves to sell.

On the handles, the inside of the lid itself is also different, so on that one  style the lid itself is not a standard BSR lid. On the older style enameled skillets, I could see how that could slip someone's mind,  but the wild ones are from the 60s-70s,, that is recent enough that someone should remember. I  hoping that a magazine or something will show up and explain who made these.
