About Vintage Ashtrays
Choosing retro or vintage ashtrays is a smart buy. Ashtrays made in yesteryear outshine any modern ashtray in quality, durability and design. Many ashtrays made from the 1900’s to the 1980’s were designed by creative artists and were hand-crafted in glass or pottery studios throughout the world. They were decorative works of art designed for usefulness and longevity.
At Big Ashtray, we search high and low for quality vintage ashtrays and select the best of the best. Each item is cleaned, inspected and sanitized. Individual imaging is done in our own studio. Full detailed descriptions accompany each product and maker information is shown when available. Shipping is done with care, assuring each treasure survives the trip to its new home.
Big Ashtray’s vintage collection is full of hard to find survivors of days-gone-by. Mostly made of porcelain or glass, breakage has caused a scarcity of these beautiful relics of the past. We’ve documented ashtrays for over 10 years, and are proud to archive the art ashtrays for history.
We’ll never see ashtrays made so well again. Since the 1990’s everything is machined and designed to maximize profit with very little attention to design or durability. Ashtrays from the past are a better buy than modern-made ashtrays….and so much more interesting. View our vintage art ashtrays for sale.
