This glass sugar jar with tin lid was made for the Sellers Kitchen Cabinets, circa 1910-1920. It was a multi-purpose jar, used for storage of cookies, biscuits, flour or sugar. It features a decorative rope embossed design around the top opening, a large embossed "S" (for Sellers) on the front and back, and decorative vertical incised lines on each curved side. This design was known as Triple Skip (a series of three lines and a blank skipped space between). This line of glassware was used exclusively by Sellers for their cabinets.
Glass is in great condition, with typical small bubbles. Metal cover has some oxidation, but is in great condition. Rim of the glass opening has a small amount of roughness on the inside, but has no sharpness. Glass has some light surface scratches, but nothing serious.
Jar measures 8 1/4 inches high, 6 1/2 inches front to back, 7 1/2 inches wide, with a top opening of 4 1/2 inches.
Great condition and displays beautifully! A nice original "S" jar for your Sellers cabinet!
