Vaseline or Uranium glass is a transparent yellow to yellow-green glass owing its color intensity to the uranium content. Vaseline glass became popular in the mid-19th century with its greatest popularity being from the late 1880's to the 1920's. The term Vaseline glass is based on a perceived resemblance of petroleum jelly as formulated and commercially sold at this time in history.

This lovely Vaseline or Canary glass jar, circa 1910, is the insert jar for a fancy silver plated frame, lid and pickle tongs. It is lovely as a separate item of early colored glass and could be used as a spoon holder or smaller size vase. The jar measures 4 1/2" in height, 3 1/2" across, including the hobs, 3 1/8" (outside) across the top rim and 2 7/8" (inside) across the top rim. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Pickle caster insert jars are difficult to find; this is a lovely pattern and color.
