~~RARE JAR ALERT~~ This jar is by far one of the most difficult American Bisque jars to find! Olive Oyl is highly sought after in her original form. While this one does not have any chips or cracks, she was a bit overdone by whoever did the finish work with the color. There is a bit of black overspray but I expect for this particular jar, its a historical boo boo. There also seems to be, not sure how to describe it or call it, a paint separation on the right side of her collar. Its hardly noticed in the photos, but, if you look hard you can see it. On the very bottom there is a bit of a “wrinkle” in the material, too, that does not really show its so small. It does not show thru into the jar. This likely happened during the drying process when it shrank a bit. Other than these minor factory defects, I can’t say there is anytihng else of concern. When they made the jars then, they were solid, rock hard in comparison to the jars made today! This is one very heavy jar, top heavy, too. While the quality control back then was pretty good, not many of these jars ever got off the line in “perfect condition”. They all had some tiny factory flaws that have become accepted as an industry standard, today. That skinny neck / base is one way to tell the originals from the reproductions. The reproductions of this jar have a much higher collar than the originals do. They also don’t have the “vent”, the hole in the lid. This was to hang a piece of fruit like an apple slice down in the jar to help keep the cookies moist. Sort of like a humidor! She has nice color and a great price! I’ve seen this jar top $2500. Great VERY difficult to find jar. If you have questions please do email us under the “contact us” link before you buy! I used to kid my older brother because his former girl friend looked a lot like the image of Olive Oyl on this jar!
