Snuff is a tobacco product that is sniffed into the nose. While popular amonst the royalty in early Europe, the product declined amongst the well-to-do around 1850. Poor southern women continue to "dip" snuff by putting it in their mouth. Snuff is still widely used today throughout Europe.
Most snuff jars have a distinctive box-like appearance and wide mouth. Many of the early examples are pontiled (as shown to the right) and the common colors were olive green and amber.
