RARE early lignum vitae covered snuff tobacco container circa 1820. This unusual piece of treen, or treenware, would have been used in a tobacco shop. The finial unplugs, allowing a little snuff to be poured onto a tray, and the main cover breaks two thirds of the way up the body of the jar. It measures 14 inches high with a 6.5 inch center. Please see The illustrated History of Antiques, edited by Huon Mallalieu, page 258, to learn more about tobacco and snuff containers and jars, and to see an example very similar to this piece.
