A rare French, antique, glass jar from Bazar Hotel de Ville Paris from around 1900.

This glass jar is a rare collectible in wonderful condition. The glass is visibly old and handmade with its characteristic imperfections, bits and bobs and the two mold seams which show the glass was mouth-blown in a mold.

The former owner of this glass jar has worked in the famous restaurant 'Maxim's Paris' as 'chef de cuisine' at the beginning of the former century through the roaring twenties...

The jar comes from the 'Bazar de l'Hôtel de Ville Paris', a department store in Paris,
and was most probably made especially for restaurants.

These kind of jars were air tight closed by using a special kind of rope and a metal strip.
The jar and lid have some scale that can probably be removed by a long hot soak in water and soda.

The jar is about 9.5 cm's high, in inches that will be 3.75"
The diameter is +/- 11 cm's, or 4.33"
This jar is for 1/2 liter, the third image shows the bottom of the jar.

I will ship this lovely collectible safely wrapped in bubbles and a carton box.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to write me, I will gladly reply.

Merci for coming around.

*** I try to calculate the shipping costs as well as possible but by purchasing two or more items, they might become higher than the real costs. I always refund the amount payed too much when it passes 1 USD ***
