The said head 5 is also provided with a well 1
preferably of conical formation, and having an
opening 20 therein providing access to the inner

The main object of my invention is to provide
chamber of the ash receiver 24 so that the ashes

cigar may be rested with the burning end thereof

ing a coniform trap door construction which is
adapted to seal the cavity within the head of
an ash receiver and thus safely con?ne ashes,
cigarette butts, and cigar butts which may be in
burning condition when deposited therein, pre
venting the same from causing accidental con

However, it is to be noted, and I wish to stress
the fact, that as soon as pressure or depression

A particular point to be stressed is that in ash

a seal therefor, there is considerable mechanism
which must be closely assembled in order to make
