Bad Habits

During the 1930's Poole Pottery made the most sweet and innocent looking ashtrays.  Every time I see them on eBay, I'm tempted to buy one. Whether it's the little rowing boat with a central bench formed to rest your fag, or the fledgling bird with outstretched wings and tail feathers again scooped into rests for cigarettes.
This one is advertised on eBay now as a Sylvan ware ashtray designed by John Adams and again I'm sorely tempted, despite it having a small chip, but maybe I'll make do with my photoshopped image here, ripped off from the sellers listing.  I hope they don't mind, but in case they do here's the link to their eBay page.
