FJ001 Left-facing Beaver Pint

Minimum Bid: $1000

Range:$1500-2000

Sold: $1500

The left-facing Beaver pint is an iconic Canadian jar. If you collect jars, this is a must have. This example is special. The glass is a pale grey blue colour with heavy amber and milky swirls. I have seen a number of these jars with the milk coloured swirls but never one with amber streaking as well. 1/4" chip off the machined lip. Well embossed. Just a tiny bit of internal stain. Clear glass insert and a good band.

FJ002 Beehive Pint

Minimum Bid: $750

Range:$1000-1500

Sold: $1350

Over the years, the Beehive jars have increased steadily in both popularity and price. The clear pints are by far the toughest of the three sizes. This one is near mint. Very clean machined lip. Good glass clarity. In fact, the glass of this one is particularly brilliant. Best possible example! Clear glass insert and a good zinc band.

FJ009 The Diamond Quart

Minimum Bid: $200

Range:$300-400

Sold: $210

The Diamond Nova Scotia jars are rare to find in any size. Surviving specimens are inevitably damaged. This quart is in excellent condition but has a few flaws. 1/2" hairline and 1/4" fish eye bruise in the base. A couple of tiny dings to the body and the usual flaking to the ground lip. Despite the damage, this is a great example. The embossing is crisp and strong. The glass is free of stain and has some character to it. Comes with a clear Beaver style button lid and a good zinc band. First one of these we have sold in a very long time.

FJ014 "Ghost" Beaver Imp Pint

Minimum Bid: $100

Range:$150-200

Sold: $100

This jar is evidence that the glass factory got every last jar out of a mold before replacing it. The "ghost" Beaver is simply one where the animal is nearly invisible. With this jar, you can just make out an ear and a bit of the curve of a leg. The word is quite clearly embossed. The colour of this jar is clear with a very faint hint of amethyst. Heavy internal stain but no damage to speak of. Clear glass insert and a good zinc band.

FJ016 Anchor Pint SCA

Sold: $200

A pint size Anchor jar in a beautiful suncast amethyst colour. This one definitely spent some time in a window! Perfect lip. Well embossed. Some very light internal stain and minor abrasions to the glass surface. Pale SCA glass insert and a good band. I suspect the Anchor jars will continue increasing in value owing to the killer trademark.
