English Saltglaze Stoneware Tobacconist Storage Jar

A rare survivor! Here we have an originally decorated jar used in a mid 18th century tobacconist shop. Known as Decalcomania this technique is done using paper scraps stuck to a wash of gesso. Lovely original wooden lid with acorn finial (minor chip).The inside came with original tobacco contents and still smells (now emptied). Height 12 inches. Someone has scrapped back a small part of the jar to reveal the orange peel Saltglaze finish. English c 1750/60.
