So I was in an antique mall today and saw the bottle below. Thought it was just a Masters lid on a generic non-petrol bottle. Then I found another booth with one. Then another booth with two. At least 4 booths with them.

What gives? Were they a generic non-specific oil bottle, or someone's creation that has gotten spread around?

Not an oil bottle. Looks like a jam bottle.

Looks just like my Wife's Collection of Old Judge Coffee Jars. One side has a flat spot for the Old Judge Paper label.
Back when lots of companies used Glass Jars for their product, after emptying contents, women would use jars for Canning.

sometimes vendors have more than one booth in the same mall!

maybe they were all from the same person.

I've ate many a green bean from a jar much like this. I sure hope my grandmother used a old coffee jar instead of a oil bottle.LOL I agree with Dick, believe it's just a Old Judge Coffee Jar

Just thinking about Home canned garden veggies, Beef, Pork & Salt/Smoke cured meats makes my mouth water.

Well shoot. I thought I had stumbled across the holy grail! Guess I will not be buying them and hauling them to Iowa Gas to make a killing.....
