    That's what I was thinking - an old time bar ashtray.

    Maybe, but it seems a bit awkward for an ashtray. It sits closed, and needs to be picked up to open. Why not just a normal lid instead of a long hinge that folds a third of the item space back.

    This is probably all wrong, but sugar bowl with hinged lid?

    Foot or hand warmer. Fill it with coals, wrap it. Put feet on.
