Five New Rare Jars added to the FOHBC Virtual Museum

Five New Jars

Late December has been a busy month for the FOHBC Virtual Museum team, especially in the Jars Gallery. Five new specimens were hand carried and set up in the gallery, where you can see these very rare jars and read their story. Interestingly enough, they are all aquamarine, but as you can see, they are each very different.

These new jars include:

    1. Gregory’s Patent Aug. 17th 1869 Common Sense Jar that was available for a short period of time around 1870. Added on 19 December 2022.
    2. A George F. J. Colburn “Colburn’s Fountain Stopple Jar” was added on 21 December 2022.
    3. A Collins & Chapman Wheeling, West Virginia jar that is very rare and not often seen. Added on 22 December 2022.
    4. An embossed “Denver Jar” in a midget pint that is somewhat of an enigma was added on 23 December 2022.
    5. A rare half-gallon “Favorite” jar that was added on 26 December 2022.

The museum reports that they are having a great holiday season with many visitors. The Jar Gallery now has 139 great examples on display.
