    The color of this jar always catches my eye, a great looking jar that I love to show off. I see a very light amber swirl in the bottom of the jar, some people agree and others do not. I still think it is there.

    Found this guy at an estate sale but the owner was not a collector of jars. Found it tucked away on a very high shelf at the back of their laundry room above their washing machine and it was barley visible under all the dust. It caught my eye and got that "ohh I found something" rush. They wanted 5$ for the dirty jar.

      Swayzee's jars are often found in varying shades of blue to green. Your jar appears to be on the green side with a nice intensity of the color. Streaks of amber are not uncommon. It might be easier to determine the color of your jar if you photographed it on a white background, but it does appear that your 5 bucks weren't wasted!
