    This is an antique Cigar Jar I acquired from a relatives estate. It belonged to a great great grandfather. I have never identified the maker of this great jar and was wondering if someone could help. I've spent countless hours searching the internet with no luck. It's marked 456 and the letters CS on the bottom. It's made of clay and has a great bluish / copper colored glaze. Any help would be more than appreciated. Thank You

      Recently inherited the same tobacco jar with the same coloring & age from my father in-law's estate. Found a pic of one online that was listed on an auction site, it is actually a brown-ish color with none of the blue glaze that is present in your example pictured. Unfortunately, no details were given about marks on the bottom of the jar.
