Do You Collect Ashtrays &/ or Lighters?

Weekly we get emails asking about Blenko ashtrays and cigar or cigarette lighters. If you have photos of these items, please send to theblenkoproject@aol.com
This photo is from the collection of Beth:
ashtray/bowl (although the 1959 catalog shows it holding a candle) # 5924 in jonquil, circa 1959. I think this was only made one year but I could be wrong "

Smoking isn't cool
and no one should smoke
or collect these items.
Blenko should stop immediately
if they make these items.
