    Hi - I'm trying to find information on the company who would have produced this and the pattern name on this piece. I believe it is an EAPG biscuit or cracker jar. The glass is 1/4" thick and is very heavy. It measures 7" tall by 5.5" in diameter at its widest point. I absolutely love it, but am unable to identify it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Ooooh, very very nice. Our Sir TallCakes should be able to put you right on this jar, he identified mine for me. :)

      A. H. Heisey & Co. #1205-1/2 'Fancy Loop' c1897. so yes, EAPG, and you're correct, this form would be a cracker jar.

      Really beautiful!

      TallCakes, I wondered if it was the same as mine, this has a different lid, though:

      yes, Katherine; this is the same piece. These would most likely have been made with glass lids; tho' I can't seem to locate any cracker jars with lids. I do find examples of mustard jars with matching glass lids. One reference mentions that Heisey sometimes used the same lid on both Fandango and Fancy Loop.

      TallCakes, so my lid is wrong, or unsure as to what lid actually goes with this jar?
    7. TallCakes TallCakes, 5 years ago
      I've found three of these jars now with silver plate lids, and each is different... I wouldn't be concerned as long as the lid fits.

      Wow! That was fast. This was my first posting and thought it would take a while!
      Thanks so much, TallCakes, for the information and to everyone else for your help. And thanks to katherinescollections, melaniej, aura and racer4four for the loves!

      TallCakes, I did notice that the design on her silverplate lid and mine were very similar, if that means anything.

      codasmama, our TallCakes is the star CW expert in EAPG, we are lucky to enjoy his beautiful pieces of glass.

      Wonderful :) I'm so glad I found this site!

      Silver plate mfgrs. purchased items from glass companies and fitted them with lids, frames, etc and sold them as their own product. Glass "biscuit jars" with metal lids are shown in original catalogs as tobacco jars/humidors. Often there is a recessed area in the lid to place a sponge to keep the tobacco moist. Looks to be the case with this one.
