Sterling Holloware: Tobacco Jars

Antique Glass Tobacco Jars

Antique glass tobacco jars have been around since the 1700s to store pipe tobacco. Styles can range from elaborate and ornate to simple and minimalistic. The 1950s and 1960s tobacco jars were less ornate than earlier versions. Antique tobacco jars are not to be confused with humidors because they don’t control the humidity. These antique glass jars with silver lids may not be used to house loose pipe tobacco anymore, but they’re still a nice item to have in your collection. At Nelson & Nelson, we handpick every antique item we sell. This New York City store is the place to shop for antique glass tobacco jars.
