Snuff jar/bottle still has partial label and I think part of a tax stamp. Can anyone age it ? 7 1/2 inches tall, 3 inches diameter, glass lid with metal ring

Is the lip ground or smooth? That's the only photo you didn't show us! Well, you didn't show us the glass lid either. If you're missing the glass lid, they are pretty easy to find, but they're often confused with the amber Beaver lid. These generally date to the early 1900s, with the ground lips being the earliest.

Here you go and thanks. Lid is glass and I assume the original, Lip is not ground (very shiny - couldn't focus on lip). Looks like some snuff in jar (no smell though)

Here's a labeled one that was in my collection at one time.
