Pickle jar

Cylindrical shaped jar, with rayed base. Three vertical ribs divide the pattern into sections, each containing a floral spray with stippled ground. The flowers resemble a lily. Borders, above and below the main design are in a fan and bead design. The silver-plated stand, cover and suspended pickle tongs are probably by the Meriden Britannia Co., Hamilton, Ontario, or the Toronto Silver Plate Co. Excavations at the sites of Trenton glassworks in 1964 resulted in the identification of additional Nova Scotia glass from shards. (per Kathleen Campbell, Curator Emerita)
