Vintage French Green Canning Jar
+ $ shipping surcharge
These are jars with a story: the team at Elsie Green met a collector at a brocante in Le Mans while traveling through France and somehow got themselves invited back to his farmhouse where he had a big and beautiful collection of these vintage French canning jars. The jars are made from heavy green glass with metal hinges. They're retired from their useful life of canning, but we can think of so many other good ways to use them -- as vase, as utensil crock, as loose change holder, and more.
Because these are vintage, one-of-a-kind items, every jar will vary slightly in size and shape.
All vintage items from the Food52 Shop are final sale. Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.
