I was driving up to Kokomo Indiana a few years ago to visist a friend and spotted a garage sale sign along side the road, of course I slammed on the brakes and did a uwee. I saw this tobacco jar and had to have it! It reminds me of a grim reaper, he's carrying a scythe and walking with a cane, it's the coolest thing I've ever seen hand painted on a piece of pottery. I asked the guy where he had got it from, and he said he picked it up about 30 years ago at a garage sale down the street. He was asking $20.00 for it, I didn't even try and beat him up on the price. I took it to a dealer and was told it was circa 1910 and worth $200 - $300. The rest is history!
