Beautiful vintage Delft “Delaware” tobacco jar in an unusual coral coloration, complete with brass lid. I’ve never seen this pattern or coloration before. I love the cylindrical shape and the lovely scene on this Delaware jar. The piece stands approx. 9” tall from base to top of brass knob. No chips or cracks; crazing typical to Delftware. Other light wear from age. Signed “OUD Delft Made in Holland” and then there is an embossed “1981” on the right side, making this jar 39 years old.

Williamsburg Delft tobacco jars are based on an 18th-century original in the collection at Colonial Williamsburg. The antique jar, which bears the name “Carolina”, was reproduced with the same inscription, and adapted with the names of states known to have grown or exported tobacco in the 18th century. This is why Delft state jars are available in the names of some states and not others. The reproductions are hard to find, no longer produced, and highly collectible.
