Does this look familiar? Well, for fans of Mancunian independent music, it very likely does. Although officially this is the Factory Ashtray by Chris Koens and Ramón Middelkoop.

Of course, as you can see below, it’s the absolute spitting image of the 1980s Factory Records logo. In fact, it even replicates that plume of snake hovering above the original logo too. How? Well, set your cigarette or cigar in the tart and the smoke rises out of the chimney. Clever eh?

Not sure what Peter Saville will make of it, but if you want one to complete your Factory collection, it costs £19.50.

Update: Just spotted these disounted at the Fab website to £13, but only for a limited time.
