The Jar is from garage sale years ago. and the cup from thrift store, The cup says only "rling" and can barely read it but it is sterling as I have a test kit, for gold,silver, and platinum, ($14.95 Amazon). The jar says 1900 so it is Art Nouveau. RW & S Deer Head also. I think jar is cut glass as it is quite sharp on all the corners. I keep my coca leaf tea I buy from Peru in it! The cup sits on my Catholic Church alter I built in my dining room! I feel part Catholic, as a Priest blessed me once, put his hands on me, said something? And gave me a camouflage black plastic Rosary in Vietnam. We were on Cambodia border. That is me with Rosary on! The man with me was killed but won Congressional Medal of Honor! Nicholas Cutinha, the bravest man in the world. I have hand grenade next to his head, ha ha . The Priest came in a helicopter and had service for Catholic's. I watched and when it was over I approached him and asked for a Rosary. He asked if I was Catholic, and I said no, I told him, I am 18, scared, and it is really bad out here and I want all the help I can get! So he blessed me, gave me the black plastic rosary. I do not know what he said as his helicopter was ready to leave and it was very noisy. Thanks for looking!
