ITEM 7767. SNUFF JAR WITH ORIGINAL "LORILLARD'S MACCOBOY SNUFF" LABEL, deep olive green, rectangular with beveled edges, pontil scar, 4 ¼" tall, bottle is mint, label has losses as shown. Blown at a New England Glass House, 1830-1850. Ex. Bud Lane Jr. Collection.

Those who participated in the last Heckler Sale are by now well acquainted with the name Bud Lane. A second generation collector, the Lane Collection was accumulated over an eighty year period. In addition to an exemplary collection of flasks, the Lanes also accumulated a wonderful group of New England utility bottles, of which this is one. Retaining its original cork, partial wax seal and the great majority of the contents, this snuff is as pure and untouched as any that we have owned.
