Ashtray (miniature chamber pot)

About this object

This little ashtray resembling an article usually found on the lower shelf of old-fashioned bedroom washstands, or among a baby's requirements is labelled "Gest-a-po", a disrespectful reference to the German Gestapo, Hitler's secret police. Adolph's face in the bottom encourages smokers to use it as an ashtray instead of saucers, flowerpots etc..
