Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
Jar is embossed on front, "Drey / PERFECT / MASON".
This is a smooth lip jar (ca. early 1900) with a zinc lid that has milk glass insert.
Jar is in pristine SPARKLING CLEAN condition, NO cracks, chips, dings, damage, etc.
This jar has been exposed to a high heat/light source to enrich the purple color that would naturally occur if exposed to sun light for a prolonged period of time. With few exceptions, only clear glass from before 1914 will turn sun-colored-amethyst. Not only does this deep purple/amethyst color make it a great looking jar, but it also authenticates it as being truly antique! 99.9 % of these Drey jars are NOT even old enough to turn purple, yet look at this one, it is an absolutely stunning purple color!
A totally beautiful antique jar, this jar has been in our own personal collection for years but we have moved and just don't have the display space that we used to, so we have decided to sell. A pristine example with wavy whittle marks. The jar just comes to life when displayed in a window or well lit area, over the top!
