Quick Overview

COMPANY / MAKER: Unknown: Many Depression Era Companies made these straw holders
COLOR: Green
ITEM Early Depression Glass Straw Jar / Holder
CIRCA: 1920s-1930s
MARK: Unsigned
MEASUREMENT: 11 1/4" H. - 4" W.

Condition: This colorful green Straw Jar / Holder is extremely hard to find. Many Depression Era companies made these straw jar holders. They were most often found displayed in Drug Stores, Ice Cream Shops, and Diners. This lovely piece is in excellent shape and is a pretty desirable light green color. The glass parts of this awesome piece are in Undamaged Condition without chips, cracks, or mold damage. The inside of the straw holder is nice and clean. There are a couple of straw ( shear marks at the bottom of the jar), which is common on this size piece from this time period. I collect straw holders and all of mine have shear marks. The metal is slightly worn (discolored) but it is in great shape. The rod is an old one and is in great condition. Straw holders have been reproduced. They do not have the quality or clarity of the original old ones. The molds are not the same so the new jars are easy to distinguish from the 1930s jars. We guarantee this to be an early 1930s Depression Era Straw Jar worthy of being in any glass kitchen item collection

Depression Era Kitchen Glass Straw Jars:  Most Depression glass straw jars were made in the 1920s and 30s.  They were Depression Era Early Straw Holder / Straw Jar Insideavailable for home use, but were more often found in dime store soda fountain areas, or in ice cream and candy shops. These early jars came in wide range of green colors including apple green, blue green, dark green, and light green. Green and crystal were the colors most often used, but white milk glass, marigold iridescent, and black straw holders were also made. These jars came in different heights.  The taller jars are harder to find. The molds were owned by private companies who commissioned these pieces to be made. This is one explanation for the varitions in color.  If you can find a copy of Gene Florence's book on kitchen items, he shows a good sized collection of these early straw holders.  Other colors were made in the late 1930s through the 1950s with new more stylized molds.  These straw holders did not have the tyical wide panels that the older straw holders have.  Straw jars have been reproduced.  They are thicker and of poor quality. The colors are not the same and do not look good with other Depression Glass kitchen items.  Anyone collecting early kitchen items will not have a problem telling an old jar from a new one.  If you are unsure, ask questions. Make sure that the dealer you are buying from will guarantee that the piece is authentic. Old straw holders are sought by kitchen glass collectors, and not easy to find in good shape.
