Here's a Spectacularly Large Crystal Jar with a Sterling Silver Lid. It was made by Howard Sterling Company of Providence, RI. In the era that it was made, it was meant for Tobacco. Today, it could be used for any number of things. You're only limited by your imagination. You could put your cotton balls in it, or your oatmeal. Or you could leave it empty, and enjoy it as a lovely decorative antique. The hallmark on the lid was first used in 1894.
This Jar is a Wonderful Size. With the lid on, it stands about 6 ½" tall, and the Crystal is about 5 ¾" wide. The Lid is 5" wide at the top, and it weighs 91 grams. Almost 3 oz.
The entire piece is in remarkably good condition. There are only about a dozen flea bite nicks at the crystal cuts. The Sterling Lid is in the same Wonderful condition with only traces of tiny dimples at the edges.
