Cigar & Tobacco Jars  Dennis Rogers

(see Alan DeMaison Video of Dennis and his display)

Here is the next in the series of expanded coverage of the wonderful displays at the 2012 FOHBC Reno Expo this past July. There were at least thirty outstanding displays which I found quite incredible.

These pictures of the Dennis Rogers (Upland, California) Cigar & Tobacco Jar display are credited to Scott Selenak (FOHBC photographer pictured to the left).

The early Tobacco jars in the display held smoking and/or chewing tobacco and date from the 1870’s to about 1910. The Cigar jars date from the 1880’s – 1920’s and were designed to hold either 25 or 50 cigars.
