Pair of Tobacco Jars
Brouwer Family
Circa 1775
15” tall overall, jars 10” tall

This pair of late 18th century tobacco jars bear the axe shaped mark of De Porceleyne Biji (the porcelain axe) which was operated by Justus Brouwer and his son. The jars retain their period lids that are likely original.  They are in excellent condition with normal wear to the bases and rims.  Havana has a minor hairline crack visible on the exterior rear of the jar but which does not extent into the jar’s interior.
