    I have this vaseline lidded jar with a strawberry pattern. Measures about 4 inches to top of the strawberry finial, the jar bottom is 2 1/2 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches across. There are no makers marks on this anywhere.

    When I bought this online, I assumed it was a newer issue. Once I got it, I began trying to track down the manufacturer and pattern name for this, but the I can't find much of anything on this. I would think that if this was a newer issue, there would be some trace of it online aside from some ebay auctions.

    Looking for help on this so if anyone recognizes this, please let me know!

      What a nice piece. Like the slot in the lid for the jelly spoon. Really great.

      Thanks, I bought a spoon for it today. I will have to take another picture.

      Is it big enough to be a jam (jelly) pot? I was thinking it may be the sugar bowl from a set, possibly comprising sugar bowl, cream jug, and larger bowl for the strawberries, basically a glass version of the Minton majolica strawberry serving sets. The straight sides at the bottom of your bowl suggest it was made to fit into a well.
      I'd say it dates from the 1930's, maybe a little earlier. A good way to see if a piece of glass has any age is to look underneath with a magnifying glass. An older piece will have a myriad of tiny scratches where the glass touches whatever it's sat on, a result of being moved around for many years.

      Its big enough to be a jam pot. That is what I was thinking it was to begin with. Its a weird shape to be a sugar (I think). It looks to be in excellent condition, which is why I thought it might be a newer piece.

      I guess I must put more jam on my toast than you. :-)
      Is there much uranium glass produced nowadays? I thought that modern use was mainly for art glass because the supply of uranium is highly restricted and very expensive, so the glassware has to be correspondingly highly priced. I would have thought it would make tableware too expensive to sell in enough numbers to be profitable.
      Don't let the condition mislead you. My wife has two uranium dressing table sets that we know to be from the 1)920's yet look as though they were made yesterday

      That said, I'm not a glassware expert, and am always happy to be corrected.

      the form was most often called a mustard jar in EAPG. Two things make me think more modern piece: the color is bright yellow, and the thick glass in the bottom.
