Ashtrays are meant to be on the receiving end of cigarette butts as well as ash from tobacco, cigars, and even cannabis and they are usually made from durable materials. Some of the most common ones are made from glass, heat-resistant plastic, metal and even baked clay.
Typically, ashtrays come in a cylindrical shape. They are flat and made to rest on top of a table. Ashtrays that are used in public, on the other hand, are much larger and are often mounted because of the huge number of people that use them. A normal ashtray would have slight depressions on their rims; this is meant for the cigarette or cigar. There are also uniquely designed ashtrays, like one that is made up of two parts.
