    They are Dutch tobacco jars, missing their brass lids.
    These were used in tobacco shops, where people (men) would go for a smoke, selecting their favourite tobacco or the best mix. The shop would have a beautiful counter, and tables and chairs, much like a cafe.

    I always like these jars, and use my ca 1900 ones in the kitchen to store herbal teas.

    Not mine, but an example of an 18th century jar for so-called Spanish tobacco blend, "Spaanse":
