It's not a canning jar, I'm guessing some sort of food or condiment. I've never seen anything quite like that one, it's certainly an odd shape for that era.

I've seen several containers with a very similar shape from the 1930s/1940s, and they might be thought of as having a "fish tank" or "clock" sort of design. I am under the impression they contained pickles or vinegar.

Looks like it is meant to sit tilted in a pantry so could be candy or some other dry item that you spooned/dispensed out of a jar.

It's post 1929. That's when Illinois glass Co mergered with Owens glass Co. Could be a type of refrigerator jar as well as a pickle or other food jar.
