A great piece of Modernist Wedgewood Jasperware, this is a tobacco jar in solid black Jasper with white relief decoration. The decoration consists of the seals of eight English cities: London, Winchester, Cambridge, Exeter, Boston, Canterbury, Bath and one which I can't identify. The surface is articulated with two bands of rusticated Jasper which could serve as match-strikers.
The jar is 4.75" tall and 3.75" in diameter.
Condition: as new, no wear or damage.
Mark: impressed Wedgwood marks on the bottom, dated 1974.
