RARE IN UK - HUGE (10.5”) CANARY YELLOW AMERICAN GLASS APOTHECARY JAR + COVER

NON-UK BIDDERS : PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR SHIPPING COSTS BEFORE BIDDING.

This listing is for a huge canary yellow glass apothecary jar and cover. I have seen a couple of smaller ones in America and suspect this type of glass may be particular to the USA. The pictures do not really capture the bright, almost acid yellow colour – it glows so much I expected it to be uranium glass. Fabulous on a sunny window ledge, or in the kitchen for cookies!

No marks on the base, which is very slightly domed up into the body of the jar. The rim has been folded under for extra strength. The cover is moulded.

It measures approximately 10.5” high (including lid) x 6.75” base diameter, and weighs approximately 1365g (the cover weighs almost 400g alone). In good condition with no cracks or chips, just a few fleabites to the rim of the cover.

Please note that any small air bubbles or inclusions, if present, are not faults but are naturally occurring features of glass.

I am planning to move home later this year and am selling a lot of pieces from my collection. I always try to combine shipping where practical.

If you have any questions or need further photographs please let me know
