The jars are glazed inside

impressed

J & H WILSON

WESTBROOK MILL

SHEFFIELD

Two of the jars also have SP under Sheffield


This snuff manufacturing business traced its origins to atleast as early as 1746. It was moved by Joseph and Henry Wilson (who hadpreviously been in business with their cousins William and George at SharrowMill) to the newly-built Westbrook Mill in 1833. It was incorporated as alimited company in May 1895. It continued in local ownership until 1953 whenthe elderly proprietors, having no successors in business following the tragicdeath of John Wilson Harland in a R.A.F. flying accident, sold the concern tothe Imperial Tobacco Co. (of Great Britain and Ireland) Ltd. Imperial Tobacco,formed in 1901, conducted its business through large 'Branches' based on itsoriginal constituents; Joseph and Henry Wilson Ltd. was placed under themanagement of the Ogden Branch (best known for its 'St. Bruno' and 'St. Julien'pipe tobacco brands) in 1953 and production moved in 1962 from Westbrook Millto the Ogden Branch factory at Boundary Lane, Liverpool.

I went back to the antique shop which was selling these pots as the owner phoned to say he had another one which was missing its wooden lid, all he knows about them is that they came from a farm clearance here in Lincolnshire, They had been in the shop for a few months so I was lucky to get them
