    Strange jar.

    Hello All, I dug this small jar last month. I can't figure out why it is designed the way it is. People have speculated that it was a serving jar for small fruit with a slot for toothpicks or an ink jar with a slot for the pen to go in to. Threaded top. It is heavy for its size. I'm guessing...

    Strange Owl.
