We were having thanksgiving dinner at my 94 year old great aunts house that has a museum full of antique's and collectibles.My cousins is the only smoker so she got a ashtray for him.The Amber one came out 1st and before one ash fell I jumped up like a lion protecting his Cubs and yelled !! STOP !!.How could abuse such a beautiful piece of glass for smoking.I grabbed it and asked my aunt to please get him another one.She went in to the garage and brought out the smaller green Viking ashtray.Again I leaped in to action and jumped across the coffee table and barely grabbed it in time before he could use it.I then asked took to see where she was getting these from and to my surprise because she never smoked there was a treasure trove of ashtrays that have never even been used tucked away in the garage.I got a box cutter out and cut the bottom of a 2 litter Diet Coke bottle out then put a little water in it and that was my cousins ashtray for the rest of the day.Here's 6 of over 40 ashtrays I saved from certain glass cancer to live another lifetime.I'll post the other ones later that are really unique and a lot older than these.
