Fruit Jars

FJ001 Left-Facing Beaver Pint

Minimum Bid: $1000

Range:$1500-2000

Sold: $2450

This left-facing Beaver pint is the best example we have sold. It is mint. The glass is nearly colourless but not clear. Swirling through the glass are smoky wisps of white. These are the result of impurities in the glass batch. This feature puts the jar over the top. A truly exceptional example of an iconic Canadian jar.
