Title Mi Wauki Cigar Glass Container

Description Mi Wauki Cigar glass container with lid. Main container consists of 16 side panels with a label that says "Old Q" and an old man dressed in historic clothing. The lid has the label "Mi Wauki Cigar" on it and also has 8 crescent-shaped holes etched out, which perhaps could double as an ashtray. The lid also has a handle that is a glass ring. The interior of the container contains leftover tobacco bits perhaps, and a ring made of unknown material lines the outer edge of the interior. The bottom of the glass container has etching that says "Factory No. 301. 50. 6th District Ind."

Notes The Mi Wauki Cigar glass container is in poor condition. The label on the exterior of the container is scratched and parts of the edges are peeling. There are also other stick-on labels that appear to have been removed. The lid of the container is chipped along the edges. The interior of the container contains leftover bits of tobacco perhaps. There is also a ring made of an unknown material inside lining the outer edge of the container that is warped .
