Ancestor of the Traffic Cone

Ancestor of the Traffic Cone

Ancestor of the Traffic Cone (2003)

This is an antique traffic smudge pot. It has been cleaned up and has its original wick. These make great tiki torches for your outdoor living.

The fact that I remember these dates me a bit. I loved those smudge pots, though - they were always ringed around open manhole covers or wretched street digs. The flames shuddered.

Street cones have a politeness. Those firey black cannonballs were HELLISH.
