Who can tell me about an antique pipe stand that I have?

Well, a picture
is worth a thousand words. I've been told this is a pipe stand. It's made of mahogany, and I'm guessing it's from England and made around the 1920s or 1930s. There is a copper ashtray at the top with a pipe that leads to the bottom, where a glass jar is screwed on.
What can anyone tell me about it? Were these common? I've never seen one before. I was told that it should have a lid on it. Who made these? What's it worth? Ever seen one before?
