This Fire King milk glass grease jar is decorated with cheery red polka dots.

Because people have asked---in case you don’t know what a grease jar is, you would keep the jar by the stove and when you fried up something like bacon, you would collect the leftover grease (yes, the nasty part that congeals when it gets cold). You’d put the grease in this jar and then when you wanted to fry up corn fritters, or make some collard greens or green beans, cook them the bacon grease to make them tasty!

You don’t have to use this jar for grease (but you could)--it makes great decoration and storage in your kitchen.

Measures 6 inches high overall, container itself is 4 inches high; about 5 1 /2 inches diameter. Unmarked.

Overall condition is very good, with no chips, cracks or repairs. There is a small area at the base of the jar that has a few specks of color on the white glass and a tiny loss to the red of one of the lowermost dots.
