Ashes to ashes, funk to funky...
I happened to be watching "A Hard Day's Night" the other day (on the lookout for some genuine 60s inspiration), and saw a glimpse of a standing ashtray in the hotel room scene.
I remembered seeing loads of them in the past. It must have been from childhood because I've been searching for something just like it and there doesn't seem to be too many around these days.
I found the orange vintage one on ebay, but it isn't quite what I was after.
