You may wish to contact a glass conservator who can help you decide how best to repair your ashtrays. I am copying  some information on finding conservators below.  Please let me know if you need any further information.

 The AIC's website is:

or (for the "selecting a conservator” page): http://www.conservation-us.org/about-conservation/find-a-conservator

 Instructions (from the website) for obtaining a list of relevant conservators:

 Please provide a complete description of the object you wish to have treated, the type of conservation service you require, the geographic area in which you prefer to have the work done and your regular mailing address. In response to your inquiry, a computer-generated list of conservators will be compiled and grouped geographically, by specialization, and by type of service requested. In addition to the listing, you will receive the brochure Guidelines for Selecting a Conservator,which provides information to help you in the decision-making process, including what you should expect from a conservation practitioner, general business procedures, and information on AIC's membership categories
