Does any body have any information on this set of VW fish Stuff?

I've seen the ashtrays around, but the cup and saucer is new to me.

The guy I bought it from said it was from the VW Cantina at Wolfsburg. With that info, I'm thinking these were in the break room at the factory.

Sounds like a cool story, but I'd like to know some solid facts.

Can anyone help?

Thanks for the reply.

The ashtray is made by Ornamin. The made some pretty cool plastic ashtrays in the 60's, it seems.

The cup and saucer (made of porcelain) have no markings, unfortunately.

That's all I got.

Thanks again.

Seems way high, especially with that screen name. Cool
