Victorian 19th Century Antique Tobacco Jar with original gilt decoration

Victorian 19th Century Antique Tobacco Jar with original gilt decoration

England

circa 1880

The sarcophagus shaped tobacco jar is made of polished lead with gilt decoration to the side panels and crossed 'pipes' to the centre panel. The carved decoration to the lid is of great quality and still has the original finish. The tobacco jar interior still retains the container's internal lid. Regardless of its original purpose, it makes for an interesting piece of objet d'art.
