Heath Ceramics Small Ashtray

You might not smoke, but these vintage ashtrays by Heath Ceramics make great tabletop art. This is the original classic design that was the one item that Brian, Edith Heath's husband, designed for Heath. It became one of their most popular sellers due to it's widespread use in offices as the "safety ashtray". The tapered notches self-extinguished cigarettes that were left forgotten.

We've also found that you can rest chopsticks in the notches and use them a sort of small rice bowl. This is a smaller six notch ashtray in a brown/beige speckled glaze that's marked with the Heath company logo on the bottom

In great vintage condition, with no cracks or chips.

Measures about 4 3/4 inches across and 2 inches tall.
