This vintage apothecary or candy jar was probably used in a soda fountain or general store. It is a molded jar and this spiral pattern is known as the Columbia jar. It originally came in an unknown number of sizes and they were available with ground or non ground lids. A ground lid and collar was more air tight for unwrapped candies like lemon drops. Non ground jars cost the shop owner less and could be used for wrapped candies and sundry items like sponges. This jar does not have a ground lid or collar. These jars were made in the early 1900's and then produced again in the 1950's by the Tiffin Glass Company.
It measures about 11" tall with the lid on. The base measures about a 4" in diameter and the top edge measures just under 3" in diameter. It is in very good condition with minimal wear. The mold seams are a bit crude and slightly pronounced at places but do not appear to be chipped or damaged.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
