If you were thinking about taking up smoking then this should clinch it!

This is a Swanky bit of Mid-Century Exotica in the form of a Set of 7 1/2"  Male & Female Figural Eastern Indian Plaster Ashtrays Complete with their Original Glass Dishes!!!

I have only seen one other set of these and they had breaks repaired in about 4 places. This set is without any brakes or chips, but the paint is scratched off of a portion of the underside of the girls chin and right breast and on a small area of the lower left side of the guys turban (all three of these are easily touched up and are not readily seen while sitting on a table in their present condition). I was informed by the dealer conducting the estate sale where I found these that the original glass dishes for this set, which are included, are always missing and that people often replace them with plastic ashtrays that fit in the bowl area.
