18th Century Lead Tobacco Pot. B75

DescriptionThe scene on this Tobacco Pot is of sociability and good cheer, two people sitting at a table, clasping hands and raising a glass. Made of lead, the main body of the pot is rectangular with canted corners. The raised decoration and painting in red, yellow and green would have made this little pot a jewel in which to keep one's tobacco, and would have belonged to someone relatively wealthy. The lid is made of tin, with a lead finial. Like the pot, the painted decoration, though dulled by time and use, is still apparent. Circa 1790
