'Improved GEM' (1930's) Quart
This beautiful jar was produced from the late 1920's through the 1930's in Canada. In fact, Gem Jars were only ever manufactured in Canada.
Our entire pantry is Improved Gem jars with Glass Tops and we couldn't love it more!
Totally functional, you can use these jars for airtight food storage in the fridge, freezer, on the go using any gem mouth jar lid (glass or metal), or as a gorgeous addition to any jar collection.
Jar is smooth aside from the beautiful script logo.

All jars are guaranteed to be free of cracks and rust, though vintage jars can have very slight "flea bites" in the rim or other small cosmetic chips that do not affect the performance of the jar.

Height: 6 3/4 inches tall without lid.

I purchased these to try my hand at pickling and they didn't disappoint. What's better than mason jars? VINTAGE MASON JARS! Will definitely revisit and purchase more in the future.
Received my four nice vintage Gem jars, which will go nicely with the stock of unused Gem lids I still had in my collection. On their way to being filled with 7-day pickles. Thank you very much!
Actually, it was in answer to a request from my daughter, she does a lot of canning. Sorry!
