- Source: eBay
This Sandwich glass pomade jar is in the shape of a black bear wearing a muzzle. It looks black, in color, but when held up to a light one can see the dark amethyst color. It is approximately 3&3/4 inches tall, 2 inches wide and 2 inches front to back. The bottom of its base has a raised rim line. This bear is sitting on its rear legs. Its front paws are folded. This bear could represent an organ grinder's trained bear. The head separates from the body. There are chips on the rim of the body, where the head fits. There are also some chips on the bottom rim of the head. The rest of this pomade muzzled black amethyst bear is in good condition, with no cracks. These pomade bears were produced by the Sandwich Glass co from the mid to late 1800's. The shipping weight is one pound. The winning bidder pays the shipping costs.
