While cigars have been smoked in Britain since the 1700's, it was the during the Victorian period, and with the introduction of cigarettes, that we start to see production of silver specifically intended for use when smoking. Silver ash trays from this period are rare however, with the majority available being from the 20th Century. The silver ash tray has remained a stylish accessory for any smoker since first being produced, and makes an essential item for any smoking room.
