This urn was first drawn when William Warren was designing the Shelves for Life.
The lid of the urn can be used as a functional ashtray and the pot as storage for all your smoking paraphernalia. It is meant to remind the smoker of the probable/possible results to smoking. See also the No Smoking ashtray.
It has the potential to be used as an urn for somebodies ashes, but realistically, after the suffering of watching somebody die slowly and painfully from lung cancer, families are likely to have lost their sense of humor.
