Cobalt highlights to maker's mark, capacity mark, and handle terminals. Included with this lot is a fitting, domed-shaped lid, possibly original to the jar, well-decorated with brushed cobalt X's. Jar with a small restored chip to each handle, restoration to an in-the-firing contact mark to left of decoration, a 1 3/4" hairline from rim on front, a very faint 2" line from rim on reverse, a 5" horizontal hairline at base on front, some staining, and minor chipping to rim and shoulder molding.
