Here's a really nice piece of antique tobacciana. This early pewter tobacco jar is 6" high and 4 1/2" in diameter at the base. It is a completely original, and well preserved, late 18th century tobacco jar from around 1790. It also has the original lead presser inside to compact the tobacco.

On the front off the jar is a beautifully engraved pair of crossed pipes and a "K" monogram inside a garland of engraved leaves. I also like the ribbed detail on the top and bottom of the jar.

This is the kind piece that sends you mentally back to a tavern in the Revolutionary times. The men smoking clay pipes and talking over the news of the day more than 2 centuries ago.
