Q: I have several crockery jars about 6 inches tall stamped “Weyman’s Snuff.” Can you tell me when they were made and what they’re worth?

A: George Weyman opened a tobacco shop in Pittsburgh in 1822. He was the inventor of “Copenhagen” snuff. The company became Weyman & Bros. in 1870, so your jar was probably made before then. There were several changes in name and ownership until it became the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co. in 2001. That company is still in business. Your Weyman’s Snuff jar is worth about $25.
