    mostly I just find " crown jars " around here and a lot are broken , although I imagine there were other brands used locally

    do have an unusual jar I found years ago in the garage in a box , should try and find it , it might be something people are interested in seeing , not sure of the brand or country of origin

    Yup, LOTS of Crowns out there but that makes it fun as well since there are so many varieties made by different glass houses for such a long time! Can fill a room with a serious collection of Crowns!

    Your province should have loads of different and rare jars all around so the selection should be much better than here in Winnipeg It's hard to even find the Manitoba made jars like Mid West and Acme Seal so pickings are slim.

    Pls. do post your unusual jars!!!
