Hoosier Kitchen Jars (Each)

I paid a premium for today’s jars, but these beautiful green Hoosier kitchen jars are pretty hard to come by, so it’s pretty much a case of beggars can’t be choosers. The jars were manufactured by Owens-Illinois, a glass bottling company founded in 1929, and still going strong today (Owens-Illinois is a Fortune 500 company – seemingly there’s money to be made in glass!). The jars were originally manufactured for freestanding kitchen cabinets, known as Hoosiers, that were popular in the early 20th century, before built-in cupboards became standard in the 1920s – which explains the condition of our jars, the lids of which are a bit worse for wear! The lids are still functional though, and the beautiful green glass is in pretty much original condition – testament to the durability of glass – nearly 100 years on, and it still looks fabulous!

Dimensions: Large jar – 20cm tall x 14.5cm long x 12.5cm wide; Medium jar – 18.5cm tall x 9cm wide; Small shaker – 10.5cm tall x 5.5cm wide
