This very large jar measures 12" diam., 12" overall ht. I think it's orignal use was a Dessicator (sterilizing instruments) These make the most wonderful storage containers in the kitchen, it's ground glass top insures a snug fit and makes a great storage unit for bread, cookies, etc. There are several large chips on the rim of the base however (as shown on the photos) The base shows excellent and very honest wear, this pc. would probably date from the latter part of the 19th century.
