This beautiful old jar would once of had pride of place on a shop counter, holding the crackers or sweets that were for sale.
It has an unusual 'squashed' shape which tilts the opening forward, presumably making it easier to reach in and take what was kept inside. Can't you just imagine a line of them on a shelf filled with delicious treats!
The glass is almost clear, with just the slightest green tint at its thickest parts.
It would look wonderful filled with shells, sponges or fruit.
Measures approx: 24cm x 20cm
