It seems hard to believe now but smoking used to be everywhere. The material culture around smoking gave rise to ton of objects from ashtrays, to holders, cases and lighters. This example, obviously from the early seventies, demonstrates how smoking was also a decoration element, more comfortable on the coffee table and desk than the pocket (popular today). Big, tacky and ugly but at the time, this was it.
