This pristine jar was made by Smalley after 1896, and has all the patents from 1892 on embossed on the bottom. It has the most impressive seal embossed on the front.
The lid was made by Whitehall Tatum with an 1861 patent date embossed. I have it taped on so it doesn't get lost, but it would have been wax sealed on back in the day, from what I'm told.
The top of the lip DOES NOT HAVE THREADS. But there is no room for a bail either, So this is the appropriate top, unless you were to only use cloth and wax.
