OK Buick Experts - Ash Tray ID?

I came across this pretty little ashtray for a Buick with the logo on the face. It is 2 3/4" wide by 1 3/4" high by 1 1/4" deep, the front panel is textured and polished stainless and the back part is pressed steel. I need to know year, model, and location in the car where it was used, and some photos of how it is installed would help. Thanks in advance!

This photo is of a 1941 Buick Roadmaster Conv. You can just see subject ash receiver lower RH corner of photo. There was one on each side for Roadmaster, none seen in a '41 Super Conv. or 4dr conv.  Period Caddy Conv's used same (different logo).

sorry I didnt see this post until doing a search for pictures of these. I have a 1940 Buick Super convertible coupe 2 dr. I did some extensive reseach while trying to find a pair for my car. the Buick factory chassis and body parts manual lists these as 1940 thru 1948 Buick convertible, ALL. except 4dr phaeton.

Actually my research said it was only used on the 1940 Roadmaster convertible coupe and this was backed up by a number of photos.

Same surround and ashtray was used by Cadillac Fisher & Fleetwood, just a different skin on the ashtray.......it’s a GM Turnsdet design, Cadillac first used it in 1930 and it went till 1941. Install was not consistent over time, and some cars had them, and others didn’t. Cadillac’s often have Buick ash trays in them, because they cost 15 - 20 percent of a Cadillac example. I have a set of Buick inserts for use in out 1930 V-16 phaeton when we will be parking it in an unsecured area as the factory units disappear as fast as 100 dollar bills on a sidewalk.
