Here's a beauty of a primitive stoneware canning jar from Grandma's farm kitchen. This old jar measures just under 8.5" tall and it has a diameter of 3.5 at the top and 4.75" at the bottom. The colors are variations of tan/sand, with some manufacturing variations as well. The jar is in near-pristine condition with only a couple very small chips on the rim (see photo). No cracks. There is a whimsical "thumb print" dent on the lower part of the jar, put there by the maker, whether intentional or not, who's to say. :) I happen to love it. It makes this jar special, and unusual. Overall, this jar is a gorgeous example of salt glazed stoneware from late 19th/early 20th century. The fact that it's made it this far in such beautiful condition is remarkable. Would look amazing on display in your country kitchen cupboard.
