Are there any pottery makers here? I was somewhat interested in someone making some match holder/ashtrays as seen in some of the old westerns. Probably not a big market for them but thought a few my be interested.

Etsy is already selling several of them.

 

River Junction used to sell them. I bought one. Now they might work real good out in the Southwest, where they consider it to be a humid day if the humidity is over 15%.

 

But here in Florida, where we think it is an extremely dry day if the humidity drops below 85%, the {match is} MATCHES setting out in the holder soaked up moisture, and then when you try to strike them the heads would fall apart.

 

Oh well.

I have been searching for years and can not find what I am looking for....just like the one in the photo. I purchased a small one but never was happy with it....it is nowhere near like the one I want.

Go to a junior college that has pottery classes and find someone to make what you want.
