Glass Jars

Tall Fresherator jar

Well, here’s a great nostalgia piece for you. An old Fresherator refrigerator jar straight out of the ’30's or ’40's when these jars were often given as bonuses with the purchase of a new refrigerator. Or at least that’s the story I found when I originally researched this jar. However, based on emails from two of our site visitors, that story seems to be in error. We have now determined that two different companies made Fresherator jars: Silex in the 1930’s and San Francisco Home Container Corp. in the 1940’s. The Silex Fresherators seem to have been intended as cannisters, have glass lids, and are embossed “Silex Fresherator.” The Home Container Corp. Fresherator jars, like this one, are refrigerator jars, embossed “Fresherator,” and originally had aluminum Press 2 Seal lids.

This jar is the large 3 pint size, with markings on the back indicating the 1, 2, and 3 pint levels. The front has the “Fresherator” script in a banded rectangle that descends into the 1-1/2" stippled border encircling the bottom portion of the jar. The jar stands 7-1/4" tall with a base and outer rim of 4-5/8" diameter. Inner rim mouth diameter is 3-1/8". Bottom is marked with an S followed by an interlocking G and C followed by a zero. It also carries the number 3860 with an additional 3 underneath. It has long since lost its lid but is in otherwise perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. If you want a set, we have a pair of shorter Fresherators listed immediately below. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Can You Help??

Got an email from a site visitor who is desperately searching for replacement lids for two of her Silex Fresherator jars. If you happen to come across any (or even jars with intact lids), please email me so we can save Perry’s vintage set.
Thanks so much!

Pair of Fresherator jars

Here are a pair of old Fresherator refrigerator jars that are shorter versions of our taller jar listed immediately above. These have no marking on the back to indicate their capacity, but I couldn’t resist experimenting, and they hold right at 3-1/2 cups apiece. Their diameters are exactly the same as the taller jar (base and outer rim of 4-5/8" diameter; inner rim mouth diameter of 3-1/8"), but these stand a shade over 4-1/4" tall. Each has the “Fresherator” script in a banded rectangle on its front that descends into the 1-1/2" stippled border encircling the bottom portion of the jar. Bottoms are marked with an S followed by an interlocking G and C followed by a 9 and also carry the number 3858. However, one has an additional 3 underneath, while the other has an additional 7 underneath. Just like their taller counterpart, neither of these jars has a lid, but both are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Pair of lidded glass jars

This is a pair of clear glass jars that stand 6-1/2” tall when lidded and are not quite 3" in diameter. Both have a gold design and words stamped on them. One says “Dulces Salsurae” and the other says “Amitae Joannae”. Huh?? The bottom of the DS jar is stamped with an I in an oval (the Owens-Illinois mark), with a 9 on the left, a 1 on the right, and a 3 underneath. The bottom of the AJ jar is also stamped with the Owens-Illinois mark, with a 9 on the left, a 2 on the right, and a 9 underneath. The lids no longer fit tightly, and probably originally had rubber or plastic rings to make them fit more snugly. There is a little bit of wear to the gold at the top of the design on the AJ jar, but otherwise both jars are in perfect condition with no chips, cracks or scratches. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Anchor Hocking tall octagonal jar

This unusual and very attractive clear glass octagonal jar stands a whopping 15" tall when lidded and probably was originally a drug store show globe apothecary or display jar. The bottom of its round pedestal base is 3-3/4" in diameter, and the round mouth opening is 3" in diameter. The bottom rim of the 3-3/4" finial-topped lid carries the Anchor Hocking anchor and H logo on one side and says U.S.A. on the other. This is quite an impressive old piece that’s starting to iridesce in beautiful rainbow colors in just the right light. Great condition, with no chips, cracks, or scratches outside and only minor usage scuffing inside. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Price: $70.00 + s/h and insurance

** SOLD **

 

Set of 3 clear glass apothecary jars

This is a set of three clear glass apothecary or candy jars that stand 5" tall when lidded. Bases are 2-1/2" squares and jar sides flare out to 3-1/4" before tapering back to 2-1/2" diameter round mouths. Very attractive shape. Jar bottoms have a tiny raised triangle. Lid tops have a flower petal design and lid bottoms are encased in plastic cups for snug fit. All are in perfect condition with no chips, cracks, scratches, or discoloration (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Wheaton jar with wire bale

This is a 7-1/2" tall x 2-1/2" diameter clear glass Wheaton jar with glass lid and wire bale closure, complete with original rubber ring. Bottom says “Wheaton”, “U.S.A.” and the figure “1" with a small dot on either side plus one underneath. Perfect condition with no chips, cracks, scratches, or discoloration.

Set of 4 jars with wire bales

This is a set of four 5-1/2" tall x 2-1/2" diameter clear glass jars with glass lids, wire bale closures, and original rubber rings. Look like Wheaton jars, but not marked as such. Say “wire side” on one side of the neck. Four small raised stars around the shoulders. All carry a “K” on the bottom, but are numbered differently. One carries the numbers “1879" and “4"; the second the numbers “1879" and “5"; the third the numbers “1877" and “7"; and the fourth the numbers “1877" and “8". All four are in perfect condition with no chips, cracks, scratches, or discoloration. (Click on picture for more images.)

** SOLD **

 

Set of 4 apothecary jars

This is a set of four 3-1/2" square clear glass apothecary or candy jars that are 3-1/2" tall rising to 5" tall when lidded with their 2-1/2" diameter round large-knobbed lids. Three sides of each jar have a sunburst pattern with small oval sun and long tapering rays, while the fourth side has much shorter rays and a much larger oval sun where a paper label was probably originally affixed. The lid knob tops have a sunburst pattern, and sides have a band of indents the perfect size for picking the lids up with your fingers. The jar bottoms are marked with a large T with what looks like a smaller M and F under each wing of the T. One jar has a number 1 under the logo, the second a number 4, the third a number 5, and the fourth a number 7. All four are in perfect condition with no chips, cracks, scratches, or discoloration. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Price: $36.00 + s/h and insurance

Set of 4 square candy jars

This is a set of four clear glass apothecary or candy jars. Three are identical in size (2" square x 4-1/4" tall when lidded), and the fourth is also 2" square but 4-3/4" tall when lidded. The bottoms of the three shorter jars carry the numbers 16, 19, and 33 respectively, and the bottom of the taller jar carries the number 6 or 9 depending on which way you look at it. All four jars have 1-7/8" diameter plastic lids that screw on. All pieces are in perfect condition with no chips, cracks or scratches. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Duraglas lidded square jar

This is a vintage Duraglas square jar with rounded corners circa 1940. It is 4-1/2" square and stands 5-1/2" tall when lidded, with a 3-3/4" diameter mouth opening. Two of the sides have the “Duraglas” raised script, and the bottom has the Owens Illinois Glass Co of Toledo logo (an “I” in an “O”), with a figure 7 on either side and a figure 3 underneath. Perfect condition with no chips, cracks, scratches, or discoloration (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
