I don't can with them, I use them for different decorative needs.
More often than not there is a fresh flower arrangement going on in at least one.
I have even used them for drinking glasses for outdoors too.
When I first started to collect them, it pained me to spend anywhere from $12-16 dollars, for ONE!
Now that my collection has grown to 9 plus, I see them and think..." $15? that's not bad" !
The lids will vary. Some are the old zinc type and some are the glass. Glass is my favorite but of course, I've broken a few.
Recently I ran across a pin on Pinterest that showed the values of these little darlings.
I'm guessing this one is 1900-1923
Recently I ran across a pin on Pinterest that showed the values of these little darlings. Thank you Karen M. Vincent from "Minnetrista" on Pinterest.
I'm not sure of the value difference between the zinc & glass lids.
Hope you enjoy these little pretties and appreciate the fun ideas you can do with them!
Thanks for visiting!
