8" Glazed Stoneware Canning / Preserves Root Cellar Jar With Lid:
Before canning became completed with glass containers, food was preserved from harvest in stoneware vessels. Some were glazed inside only, inside/outside or no glaze. The latter adopted content flavors so were used only with the same foodstuff year after year. This jar is about 8" tall with a 5" diameter. The lid sits recessed at the top and may have been sealed with wax or weights. Beautiful color & form. Some small nick's in the lid. No cracks or hairlines noted in the jar. The bottom appears to be yellow clay.
