Fostoria American Straw Jar & Cover

Straw Jar & Cover

Covered Containers

Item Number:  CC-14
Approximate Size:  4″ Top D – 12″ H
Production Dates:  1915-1928

The main body of the Straw Jar was produced from the same glass mould as the 10″ Vase.  The two items are often confused with each other.  Though made from the same mould, the Straw Jar bottom was made with a bigger opening so that it could accommodate a cover (or lid).  If one tried to put a Straw Jar Cover on a piece that was designed to be a 10″ Vase, it would not fit. The lid would be too big, as the 10″ Vase has a smaller opening in comparison to the Straw Jar.

The Cover is the same piece that is used as the lid for the Sugar and Cover.  This information is good to know, especially if you only have the bottom to the Straw Jar – and are in need of just a cover.
