Oddball Item of the Week

A bathroom cigarette caddy /ash tray in the shape of a toilet.

Because there's no reason to lose any smoking time ever.

Ceramic in attractive brown with hand-painted gold hi-lights.

Cigarettes are stored in the tank, and you ash in the bowl, with a notch in the back for wall mounting.

This "Cigarette Set" brought to you by Thames "to complete your bathroom and add to your comfort". Circa 1960.

This came from the estate of a plumber so I'm guessing it was a trade promotional item.

On ebay now (ends Sunday night at around 6PM EST).
