Antique Early 20th Century Rowntrees Gums Shop Advertising Display Jar

antique early 20th century large rowntrees gums shops glass advertising jar

A wonderful rarely available early 20th Century large glass advertising jar for Rowntrees Gums.

Dating from the early 20th Century, these antique glass advertising jars are rarely seen and highly sought after.

This would have sat atop the counter in a sweet shop or grocery store, filled with Rowntrees gum sweets, which would have been sold loosely by weight at the time.

Adorned with an art nouveau patterned lid, these jars still look very proud and are perfect on display as well as being filled with sweet treats.

It’s an excellent example. Often these have lots of chips around the top rim, the result of years of use taking the lid on and off. There is one small chip to the top inside rim which is approximately 8mm by 4mm, and some minor nibbles which can be felt running a finger around the top. However, these are the only imperfections and the glass is lovely and clear.
