Beautiful vintage Marzi & Remy German Salt Glazed Rumtopf jar with lid. It's 8.5" tall without the lid, approx. 10" tall with the lid, and approx 8" across the top. It's in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. (Rumtopf originated as a way to preserve fruit in alcohol. Rum (or brandy, etc.) was put in the pot, fresh fruit was added in season, and the rum and fruit was enjoyed around Christmas.) It could also be used as a cookie jar. It's quite heavy. This item is being shipped from Germany; insurance is required and is included in shipping cost.
