BC16. "WEYMAN'S / COPENHAGEN / TRADE
(MONOGRAM) MARK / SNUFF" WITH ORIGINAL "WEYMAN'S COPENHAGEN
SNUFF PITTSBURGH, PA." GLASS LID, (RB7# 2950), bright orange
amber, two-piece mold wax sealer, smooth base, quart, applied
mouth with wax seal groove, dug and lightly cleaned to near perfection.
Probably blown at a Pittsburgh District Glass Works, C. 1875,
a scarce jar that is rarely encountered with an original amber
This scarce wax seal snuff jar is only rarely encountered with
its original amber lid (we know of only one other) and as shown,
the jar displays impressively. As noted, the piece has been cleaned
but only lightly so, as the glass retains brilliant luster and
there is nominal evidence of ground wear. The jar was almost
certainly blown at one of the Pittsburgh Glass Works and the
piece dates to the mid-1870s.
