Very Rare Bold Yellow-olive Lightning Putnam 1/2 Gal. Ground Lip Jar Rb # 1492 For Sale
HELLO & WELCOME!
I HAVE UP FOR sale A NICE VERY, VERY, RARE UNLISTED BOLD YELLOW-OLIVE or OLIVE-YELLOW HALF-GALLON SIZE UNMARKED TRADE MARK LIGHTNING GROUND LIP, GLASS TOP OLD STYLE LIGHTNING SEAL FRUIT JAR MADE BY PUTNAM IN THE 1870's OR 1880's! THIS JAR IS STRONGLY WHITTLED SHINY GLASS WITH AIR BUBBLES THROUGHOUTAND COMES WITH A DARKER SHADE MATCHING LID!
THERE SEEMS TO BE MORE YELLOW IN THIS JAR THEN OLIVE GREEN AND IT DISPLAYS VERY WELL. THERE IS A CITRON IN A QUART LISTED BUT NOT IN A HALF-GALLON and THERE MAY BE TOO MUCH YELLOW or NOT ENOUGH GREEN TO BE CLASSIFIED AS CITRON; HOWEVER YOU BE THE JUDGE.
THERE IS NO DAMAGE EXCEPT FOR SOME MINOR WEAR MARKS ON THE BASE. THIS JAR IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION FOR BEING 130+ YEARS OLD! THE GLASS IS SHINY WITH AIR BUBBLES. THIS IS NOT A REPRODUCTION JAR - THIS IS THE REAL DEAL.
THE LAST PICTURE IS FOR COMPARISON SHOWING THIS JAR WITH A NICE DARK AMBER QUART LIGHTNING, A BALL BLUE IDEAL HALF-PINT AND A OLIVE GREEN QUART. THE COMPARISON JARS ARE NOT FOR SALE.
THIS JAR WAS MADE BY PUTNAM GLASS DIVISION OF THE LYNDEBOROUGH GLASS COMPANY AND HAS THE NAME PUTNAM ON THE BASE PLUS THE MOLD NUMBER 197! THIS IS RED BOOK NUMBER 1492. I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH ON THESE PUTNAM JARS.

THE "LYNDEBOROUGH GLASS COMPANY" of SOUTH LYNDEBORO, NEW HAMPSHIRE 1866-1886. THEY MARKED THEIR JARS "PUTNAM" and "TRADEMARK LIGHTNING".
