Being offered is an antique green hand blown canister fruit / storage or apothecary jar with lid from an East Coast estate. This is a nice "primitive" free blown glass jar candy store jar or canister.
It has many bubbles within the glass and is in beautiful antique condition for its age. The jar itself has one rough spot (blemish). It measures approximately 12 1/2" High (without the lid / stopper) and approximately 14 1/2" H with the lid. The mouth measures approximately 4 1/2 wide. The circumference of the jar is 20" around or 6" across the base.
The lid does have a chip in it (see photo # 10). This jar holds 1 1/2 gallons to the very tip of the mouth.The lid would not be able to go on if it were full so it realistically could hold just under 1 1/2 gallons or 6 quarts. The bottom shows the pontil mark.
The lid is made crooked but appears to be original to the jar. Excellent jar / canister to add to your antique collection of Jars and Bottles.
