MILLVILLE ATMOSPHERIC FRUIT JAR / WHITALLS PATENT JUNE 18TH 1861 Deep cobalt blue quart size jar. Original cast iron yoke clamp and thumbscrew, with matching cobalt blue lid. Possibly the best fruit jar amongst advanced collectors, with only 4 examples known.
#1- Great idea! #2-Hmm. Someone did a REALLY nice job on these. For me, the screw top needs to be hidden, My ocd says NO NO! Could do beaded trim, embroidered ribbon, embossed metal strip, strand of pearls wrapped round & round, etc. Beautiful!
