I know that I shouldn’t buy so many ashtrays, given that they’re not very PC these days, but I just can’t seem to help myself (ashtrays and broken kettles and clocks that don’t tick are my specialities!). They’re like candy to me – the colours are so attractive that I can’t seem to walk past one without picking it up, and once I’ve done that it’s overs! Like this big chunk of glass – how could I not put this in my pocket and run home? Although it was quite a heavy piece of glass for my pocket, being a bit larger than your standard Murano ashtray. It does have some signs of wear in the form of scratches (that unfortunately aren’t visible in the photos), but there are no chips or cracks, and it’s such lovely colour and such an imposing size that I think we can overlook a bit of wear and tear!
