Chewing or Plug Tobacco Molds. Chewing or Plug Tobacco
Molds were used in the manufacture of chewing tobacco. These molds
were placed in the bottom of a wooden frame and then the tobacco
was poured into the frame and spread evenly. A blank tin was placed
on the top, placed under pressure and then sent to the curing
room. After leaving the curing room the tobacco was sheared into
plugs, wrapped and boxed for sale. The pictures on this page represent
only half of the mold. The complete sheet measures 12" square.
Each mold was used to produce 24 plugs.
