Here’s a really unusual Gouda tobacco jar. This is a well known model by the Zuid Holland company, with the lovely ‘snail’ finial, but I have never seen it in this high-glazed Fredy decor. The Fredy decor is not seen that often and hardly ever in this high-glaze finish.

It is marked to the underside with the hallmarks of the Zuid Holland company, including the year code for Feb 1918, so 99 years old this month! The Y is the year code, the 2 is the month.
Condition is excellent, there are no chips or cracks. The glaze does have some ‘blistering’. In some parts but this is part of the manufacturing process. No damages to mention.
It measures 7 inches in height (17,8cm) and has a diameter of 5.5 inches (14cm).

This would look great in your Gouda or tobacco jar collection.
Please note this item will be shipped from The Netherlands.

Verzending binnen Nederland 10 euro.
