Enquire About This Item

A Victorian terracotta tobacco jar, in the form of a wonderfully detailed leather top hat box.

Finely modelled with a padlock, hinges and tan straps, the top strap and buckles making the finial for lifting off the lid.

With the mould number of 173 and 'FGW' manufacturing marks on the base - the pottery factory marks for Bohemian maker Ferdinand Gerbing, who ceased trading in 1895 in what is now the Czech Republic.

121mm (4-3/4") x 115mm (4-1/2")

105mm tall (4-1/8")

 

Almost perfect condition with no damage and minimal wear. The interior has wear to the glaze commensurate with age.
