This is a wonderful vintage 1800’s porcelain tobacco humidor jar made in Germany. It is early Black Americana. Most collectible black memorabilia was produced from the early 1900s through the 1950s, although some collectors seek items dating back to the Civil War era as well. Many of  Black memorabilia is collected for many different reasons and by people of all races and nationalities. Not all collections have a negative connotation nor are they amassed due to bigotry. Many uplifting aspects of African-American culture can be incorporated into a collection.
