Depression Era - Hocking - Green Ribbed Sugar Jar - Canister - Early 1930's
This canister sugar container has minimal use wear, but it is very difficult to find a lid for this style jar without some damage and this lid is no exception. I have pictured the much enlarged slight damage on the lid. There is one 3/16" shallow flake, one 1/8" ding, and one 1/4" spot made up of three minute nibbles. The little ding and the nibbles are on the underside of the lid edge and do not show at all with the lid in place, and the shallow flake is barely visible. The ribbed jar is in good shape with only a tiny bit of wear and a bit of corrosion on the original "SUGAR" label.
Perfect pieces of old kitchen ware of the Depression Era are getting scarce as the years pass. It is hard to believe items like this were manufactured almost 90 years ago and most of them were actually used. This jar with an original label, and lid, even with the damage might do until a better lid can be found.
8-1/2" Tall with lid. 7" without lid. 4-1/4" Square
There is uranium in the glass and the green has a nice glow under UV light.
