This is a very nice depression era canister made by the Owens-Illinois company. This pattern is called diagonal ridged or "rough and ready". This canister measures 5 1/4 inches in height and is 2 1/2 inches square on base. It is the mid sized canister of a set and was for tea or rice. There is no label on this jar. The canister is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips or repairs. Lid is original and is in excellent condition for its age. No rust and easily removed. Great piece for a vintage kitchen.
