They say the time to buy something out of the ordinary is when you see it.
I walk out of an estate sale seeing this on the shelf .....turned around and went back in and bought it for $40. I haven't seen another one quite like this one. It only stands for inches tall and 2 inches wide. It's a simple cut glass jar with ridges. However the silver lid that covers the top is domed with a beaded lip. The scene on the lid looks like the grim reaper. There is a cherub at the top. Ther is a serpent on the bottom. On each side are two females one holding grapes one holding wheat, one looks like Lady liberty , and lady Justice. Any ideas on the Pattern ? I found another jar dated 1880-1895 but not the lid.

    He looks more like Bacchus celebrating with the spoils of his day's conquest. The Grim Reaper would be depicted in a more "Grim" setting and allure. I would have paid the $40.00 you paid for this Victorian Vanity Jar. Are there any hallmarks? RER (BOB)

    Could not find ant hallmarks on the lid.
