In game-play terms, ashtrays are mostly a purely decorative item, though they can be used as Rock-It Launcher ammunition (Fallout 3 only). Ashtrays with lit cigars in them are considered static decorations, and cannot be picked up or otherwise interacted with.
With the release of Fallout 4, ashtrays have become a source of materials for the game's in-depth crafting system.
