Royal Goedewaagen " Virginia " Tobacco Jar - Polychrome- Medium



These beautiful Delft jars are reproductions of jars originally used in colonial Virginia during the 17th and 18th centuries to store herbs and leaf tobacco. 

Manufactured for our Museum Shops by Royal Goedewaagen – one of the oldest earthenware factories in the Netherlands – the jars are made using the finest clay. To optimize and guarantee quality, various clays from Germany, England and Norway are mixed. The clay is then transferred to plaster molds and carefully baked in a bisque oven. Finally, the ceramics are decorated with bile acids or paint, resulting in the heirloom-quality reproduction that will endure for many generations.

Royal Goedewaagen is famous for its authentic Delftware decorations which are still part of their trademark today. This manufacturing process, using raw material such as ceramics, is a traditional art form. Royal Goedewaagen is the only earthenware manufacturer in the Netherlands that still uses traditional decorative techniques; from partially mechanized decorating techniques to fully manual techniques. 

The jars are offered in three sizes in the blue/white colorway  or in the polychrome (multi-color - medium - is shown here).

Medium classic “Virginia” tobacco jar in polychrome measures 9.5-inches tall including brass lid. Certificate of authenticity included.
