I found this jar at a yard sale here in Tennessee. I have not been able to find much information on its history. Does anyone know anything? I know it is from Biloxi, Mississippi and I know it held oysters. I know it is prior to 1954 because they changed the name in August of that year. (Thank goodness!!) I have contacted the Maritime and Seafood Museum in Biloxi and am waiting to hear from them. I have also contacted the Historical Society there too. They directed me to the museum. I have attached a front, back, top and bottom picture. The back says 'Ball Ideal' and on the bottom is either a number '10' or 'QT'. Please, if you know anything about this jar or can direct me to someone who does, I would appreciate it so much! Thank You!
