Anti-axis Ashtray

Unknown manufacturer

This is a rare anti-axis ashtray. It uses sex to communicate a vital message. hitler's eyes and ears were everywhere on the homefront in the form of spies sent to relay sensitive information back to Germany. "Careless talk costs lives". The graphic subtly shows a caricature of hitler patiently listening to the happenings in the bathtub. His image is easily missed in the wake of the erotic images. It is ceramic, a modified triangular shape, and measures 5 1/8"L x 5 3/8"W. Only 2 are known to exist though there are certainly more. It remains one of the great anti-axis propaganda collectibles of the era.
