"GIVE ME A HAND"...AND I'LL PUT IT TO WORK.

In case you didn't know it--- the Porcelain Hand pictured on my "HOME PAGE" is a party ashtray--from decades ago-- for fashionable ladies to use when they smoked. It fit perfectly in a woman's hand so she could discreetly flick her ashes.... whether sitting or standing or walking around. Of course today it's just a relic from the past. Or is it?!?!?

It would be an elegant soap dish in a formal "powder room"; a half bath for visitors.  It could also be used on a dressing table to hold your most-often-worn rings....or any favorite piece of jewelry.  My pretty and white-- cherished ashtray-- is a conversation piece--- wherever you choose to display it. 

Even the Brown Hand Ashtray pictured on this page has endless possibilities. It would look great on a man's dresser to hold pocket change, his watch and wedding ring or--- in an office, on a desk, to hold business cards.  Dare to use your imagination!

Women today are considered "liberated "and are quick to tell you they can flick their cigarette-- or cigar-- or pipe ashes-- where-the-hell they please.  Unlike "classy" and "fashionable" LADIES from long ago, today's females show me "zero" creativity when it comes to fashion, decorating, or imagination. Prove me wrong....if you wish.
