Mugshot: Ashton-Tate

Door gift from the opening of the Ashton-Tate Asia Manufacturing Centre in Singapore

Remember Ashton-Tate? Some of us may not have heard of the company but it was one of the top software companies in the 1980s and 1990s — ranking alongside Microsoft and Lotus — and is renowned for dBase, its database application.

The mug was given at the official opening of its Asia Manufacturing Centre in Singapore on March 15, 1991. Unfortunately, Ashton-Tate was sold to Borland six months later and dBase became history.
