Anti-Nazi Ashtray

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis is another one of a series of faux chamber pots put out by imitators of Fieldings of Staffordshire, England early in 1939 to take advantage of the, then recent, “Violation of Poland” by Hitler’s armies. It is slightly larger in size than the other example I have. On the front it says ‘Chums, what would you do?”. Inside is a cartoon image of Hitler, this time not by David Low. The design is a tongue in cheek one imitating the more common Fieldings designs. These are not as well executed as the Fieldings/Crown Lynn ones.
