I'm still going through the boxes of bottles that I collected when I was a kid.
(Back then if it was in one piece and it looked good I kept it. That's still pretty much the extent of my knowledge when it comes to old bottles and fruit jars.)
I found this Lafayette jar with the number 4 on the bottom. I can't seem to find much information about it.
I believe it's a Pint jar. It is 6" tall and the base measures close to 3 1/4" across.
I don't think I would sell it but I am interested in it's value, if any.
Thanks,

Jim

Looks like a # 1452 in the red book, shame you dont have the correct closure. For the pint size its listed at 300 +

I ordered a Red Book 12 and it came in yesterday. I'm new to this so I'm not familiar with all of the terminology they used to describe the jar.
I guess I'll try to find a closure, if possible.
I really appreciate the info.
thanks,

Nice jar & very desirable in the pint size. You should check out the North American Glass website. Greg's January 2022 jar auction is currently underway. There is a complete original stopper for a Lafayette jar (lot # 363). Also, check out the Archive section of the website for past auction sales results to give you a ballpark idea of what the jars and/or the stopper assembly sell for. It is a very nice & informative site for jar collectors.

The closures for this particular jar are much more common than the jars, so should not be difficult to search one out for a reasonable price.

You may want to keep a lookout on NAG, they have listed quite a few in past auctions.
