Large vintage Planters Peanuts Pennant 5 cents "Mr. Peanut" octagon shaped embossed glass counter display jar with the lid.
The jar is 13" high with the lid and peanut finial, 10 1/2" without the lid. It is about 8" across. The glass is a "depression green", with many air bubble inclusions. There is a minor chip on the underside of the rim lid and a rough area of the rim itself.
These jars have been produced in many forms. This one was in my mother's kitchen in the 1970's and has been in my kitchen for over 25 years. Itis a big jar and has held cookies, candy and occasional baked goods - I'm allergic to peanuts. Space has become an issue, and it's time to pass it on. This jar has been reproduced in a slightly smaller and more brightly colored version - this older one is much, much nicer!
