The practice of smoking tobacco has been around since the 16th century, but cigarettes did not achieve widespread popularity until the middle of the 19th century. That is also about the time when the first ashtrays appeared. Ashtrays are appealing collectibles for a number of reasons. Firstly, they are small, which means you can acquire hundreds of ashtrays and display them in a small amount of space. Second, they were made out of a wide range of materials, so if you are a fan of art glass, pounded copper, or ceramics, there is bound to be an ashtray for you. Third, ashtrays were produced during some of the most creative periods in history, which means there are ashtrays for fans of the Victorian era, Arts and Crafts, and Art Deco. Finally, ashtrays are snapshots of their culture, so it is not uncommon to find ashtrays that were produced to advertise products and events of the day.

Victorian china fairings are small porcelain ornaments depicting a variety of scenes, humorous, political or domestic. The ornament almost always incorporates a base and many fairings have a caption describing the scene or making some point inscribed on the base. China fairings were given away as prizes at fairs in the Victorian era, in much the same way that we would win a coconut at a fair today. They first started appearing in the middle of the nineteenth century and remained popular until the start of the First World War.

The opportunities for antique German porcelain collectibles are almost unlimited. German porcelain can be found in magnificent chandeliers to petite porcelain buttons, from antique porcelain table services to statues and figurines, and has captured the interest of collectors for the last three centuries.

The introduction of German porcelain production into Europe was revolutionary. Since the accidental discovery at Meissen in 1709 of making porcelain and the establishment of the royal Meissen factory, Germany has become the home of the European true hard-paste porcelain industry. Antique German porcelain was not only beautiful and artistic, but far less expensive and substantially more durable than pottery, and German porcelain began to take its place over other household materials for domestic use. The versatility of porcelain as an artistic material as well as its usefulness created great enthusiasm throughout Europe, where at the time it was referred to as “white gold” and compared by many to semi-precious stones.
