GROUND LIP CROWN HALF GALLONS


             FISH HOOK.


 This name has been applied by former collectors, it applies to the top hook on the letter C . Even though it is not like a fish hook and other jars look more like a fish hook I leave it .

At the top of the C the line comes down then squares off horizontally then goes back up to begin the letter C.
This jar is somewhat like the tall cross moulds .

BASE 1...10 - 10 pearls. The C is 15/16ths high and the other letters are 9/16ths with the O being 3/4's of an inch wide.
  The word CROWN is a hair under 4 inches. The # 1 on the base is 1 inch. The base # can be seen while looking at the base with the embossing on the left.
This jar also comes as the eary THE / T.EATON CO / LIMITED / TORONTO .

 

BASE 2...11 - 11 pearls. Very similar to the base 1, but the word CROWN is a little shorter 3 & 15/16ths.
The base # is a swan like 2 and is seen when the jar is held looking at the base, with the embossing on the left .

 

The top pic is of the base # 1 , 10 - 10 . The next pic is of the T Eaton's that came on this mould.
 

            JAGGED LINE.

The name for this jar comes from the zig zag line in the middle band of the Crown emblem .

NOTE . there are two sets of these Jagged line jars. This set I am sure is the older of the two. There is no line under the base number .
  These jars have a line coming down at the top of the letter C ,   it does not however square off like the one above ( fish   hook ) before it goes up to make the letter C.

It can be seen looking at base with embossing on the right.  There are 10 upward triangles in the jagged band and 9 dots in the row below.

BASE # 5... 11 - 11 pearls , the letter C is 7/8ths high and the other letters are 5/8ths. Word is 4 & 5/8ths wide.                 The 5 on base 7/8ths high  by 1/2 inches wide.

          REVERSE CROWN


The reverse name comes from the two bands across the middle of the Crown emblem.
