Well, I think this is a pretty jar...great condition. All it has is the number "17" on the bottom. From what I've read, it was made by the Knox Glass Bottle Company in 30s-40s. Does that sound about right? Any value? I figured out what a Keystone is and why Pennsylvania is called the Keystone State! My education was lacking in that area apparently...

When we lived in Louisiana, Knox quarts and pints were everywhere. Knox had glass plants in Palestine TX and Jackson MS as well as in PA. We were located about halfway between the two and were able to search out some of the harder to find Knox jars. The Jackson plant was the only one to make half pints, and the TX plant was the only one to make salt & pepper shaker jars and Texas Mason jars. I'm not sure where the Knox in script jars were made, but they were all fun to collect. There is also large & small embossing, yours is the large. I'll attach some photos so you can see some other examples

Thanks a lot for sharing your Knox pictures and the good info...so my idea that it was from Pennsylvania is not necessarily true? Could be Texas or Mississippi? The number 17...any idea what that might mean?

Numbers on the base are generally just mold numbers. I feel like the small embossed jars were made in PA and were probably the earlier ones. I never found any small embossed jars in the south.
