I went to dig yesterday and found this jar, thats has pictorial elephant heads. I thought it was green milk glass so i took it. When I washed it up I noticed the inside was just plain glass and it was green paint on the outside of the jar. I havent seen anything like this so any idea what it could be and why its like that?

I think I remember seeing these identified as Jumbo Peanut Butter jars, they had very elaborate jar designs and are quite collectible for that reason. The paint is weird, if it is a peanut butter jar it would probably have been something someone did to it later.

Is that top threaded? Is the bottom flat enough for the jar to stand alone? Maybe it was made to cover something, like a light bulb. A better picture and something to show true size would be a big help.

Here are some clear pictures, sorry for the wait. Also i think it actually was originally blue because of the part that was preserved under the label which got rubbed on when i cleaned it.
