This old wooden box was for Boot Jack Plug Tobacco. The front of the box has two latches. Inside the crudely hinged lid is the original label that appears to be paper. It’s hard to read but inside the bottom of the box it is stamped with information. Part of it appears to read; John Finzer & Bros. The American Tobacco Co. Louisville, Ky. On the back edge of the box, again, stamped and faint it appears to read; This box Contains 6 Plugs – 3x12 5 ½ Oz. 8 Space. I think it might be made of oak but I am not 100% sure and I believe it is from the early 1900’s.

It measures about 12 5/8” by 3 5/8” by 2” and it is in nice condition with some nicks on the edges of the wood and light wear to the label. The wood is dry and might benefit from some wax or oil, I have done nothing to it other than remove some dirt.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
