Description

Brightly coloured advertisements like these were placed on shop counters to attract the attention of customers. Made by W T Davies & Sons, Sweet Briar ready rubbed tobacco was popular among pipe smokers. The product is advertised as being “for contentment”. Tobacco contains nicotine, a highly addictive substance and one of a number of dangerous chemicals that are inhaled when smoking. W T Davies became part of the Imperial Tobacco Company of Great Britain and Ireland in 1902, which was formed to protect British companies from American takeovers. maker: W T Davies and Sons Place made: Chester, Cheshire, England, United Kingdom
