These jars have what looks like a twisted rope across the center band of the Crown emblem. I am sure these jars began to be made at Hamilton  when the Diamond Glass Co. took over in 1891.

  PINT.. SQUARE SHOULDER CROWN  ,The style # 3 of my ground lip pint Crowns is the pint made as companion to the Quebec Crown quarts , and by extension the Plain Rope Crown half gallons.

It has 19-18 pearls per side.
While others feel these are made at Montreal , I do not . The glass is like the Rutherford Gem and other Hamilton Glass jars. As well the base and jar form are the same on the pint and the larger sizes.



These get their name from the cloud like patches that are in the main part of the Crown.

 14 left , 15 right . Pearls per side.            No base mark at first, later it receives a underlined 5 , this mould later became the T Eaton  ground lip jar.  The rope twist leans to the right.The N in Crown is 11/16ths inches wide.

The Christian Crowns get their name from the tiny Cross in the lower leg of the large cross at the top .

This same jar is later reworked with a large A about 7/8ths tall and is seen in the same way.

15 left , 15 right .No base mark . The rope slants left. This jar was reworked and seems different but is not . I took clear box tape and checked the embossings on both . It becomes a .....
14 left , 15 right . The rope still slants left but the pearls around the top of the Crown emblem are moved slightly .As the mould aged the embossing becomes faint , often the pins that go from the pearls to the crown become faint or disappear. So this is the same mould as the previous jar.

These jars are actually the companion moulds to the Quart QUEBEC CROWNS above. They though have kept the little bow of the Christian Crowns in place of the center fleur de lis of the Quebec quarts.
