A Victorian era jar with characteristic high open crown finial and round footed base. The ebony glass is heavy and trimmed in gold with a bow styled pattern. There is some wear to the gold trim and roughness to the rim of the jar and some fleabites on the rim of the lid, otherwise condition is very good. Height is 8.5 inches with just over 2.5 inch rim diameter and 3.25 inches across the foot. The crown shaped finial is almost 3 inches tall. I have seen these described as Victorian shaving mugs, with the shaving brush placed inside the open finial, although some sellers call them powder jars. I cannot determine the manufacturer from the remnant base markings.
