A beautiful French, antique, glass jar from the French marque RAC.

The former owner of this glass jar has worked in the famous restaurant 'Maxim's Paris' at the beginning of the former century through the roaring twenties...
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxim's_Paris) and when he retired he brought some memories with him.

Among them he brought this RAC jar together with this special listing from Paris http://www.etsy.com/listing/93661067/rare-antique-glass-jar-bazar-hotel-de ... both jars from the beginning of the 1900's

The cover of the jar seems to big for the jar, it moves. I understand that these kind of jars were air tight closed by using a special kind of rope and a metal strip over the top pressing the glass top down.

A rare collectible.
The jar is in good condition. The glass is visibly old and handmade with its characteristic imperfections. The jar has some scale that can probably be removed by a long hot soak in water and soda.

The jar is 14 cm's high, in inches that will be 5.5"
The diameter is 11 cm's, or 4.33"
On the bottom it says this jar is for 3/4 liter and the figures N° 5 G.

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

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

Merci for coming around.
Marion

*** 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 ***
