This jar was my late mother-in-law's and I think she used it for keeping brown sugar in if I recall.
She was one to cut pretty flowers or photos out of magazines, you know the heavy paper ads that are in them? She would glue them to the front or top of a jar to pretty it up.
I hadn't noticed this jar had a label underneath it and read the name from the inside. It says "Herbert Tareyton - London - Smoking Mixture". Well, I wonder what that is? So I had to look it up on the internet and found out that it was a tobacco and cigarette company that was started in London, England. There isn't a lot of information on the company, but they made cigarettes in the US.
I decided I was going to remove the pretty flowers and see what the label is like underneath. I put it under water and started pealing the label with my thumbnail. It came off a bit and I noticed that the Tareyton label was actually painted on the jar. I even took a knife and scraped at the paper label and it finally came off. Then I did the other side. I washed the jar and it came out like new.
I couldn't find out on the internet how old this jar is.
The lid is in perfect shape with not a scratch or chip.
So, I filled it with a nice fall treat and set it on the kitchen peninsula. :)
The licence plate and pretty vintage tin came from my mother-in-law's house too.
Candy corn is much better than tobacco anyway. Right?
