|6 Hocking Canisters mid Century Like New|
We were lucky enough to know an appraiser who came and spent a whole day going through all the stuff, while he talked and gave values, his wife was going through drawers and cabinets! There were no big treasures but we wanted to know the values so we could yard sale alot of it before we moved back out west.
Our garage here was jammed packed and are determined that this is the year we really make decisions about it all. We had taken these canisters out and they were waiting to be photoed for eBay. Our good friend Danna Crawford was here, saw them and said I really needed to get them listed
I had no idea what they were until one day I was on Pinterest and saw a jar like mine that said Jadeite / Jadite. That day became one of research and alot of discussion on a Facebook group. One gal has a friend who is an expert on Jadite and gave me alot of very helpful information. The Green Color is flash on or fired on over clear glass.
BTW - Prior to the early 1940's Hocking was the Glass company. Anchor was the company who did the lids and after they merged they added the Anchor logo. My canisters do not have the anchor logo!!!
