A Victorian Tobacco Jar






Another antique from the Victorian era. This is a Tobacco Jar. Not a lot of good to me for that purpose but I quite fancy the idea of having one and keeping Imperial Mints (no irony intended) in it. I could wear my Victorain Smoking Hat and read whilst sucking upon the odd mint.


Spiffing Wot?

Very nice object. What does it say on the side?

Hard to say. Something about sleep?? Not sure what sort of fags the old Victorians smoked? Maybe too fond of Sherlock Holmes type substances!!??
