Castor Jar

Castor jars for pickles are glass jars about six inches in height, held in special metal holders. Castor jars became more ornate each year, and by 1860, they were cathedral-like pieces. They were a popular dinner table accessory about 1890. Each jar had a top that was usually silver or silver plate. The frame, also of a silver metal, had a handle that arched above the jar and a hook that held a pair of tongs. By 1900, the pickle castor was out of fashion. Many examples found today have reproduced glass jars in old holders. Additional pickle castors may be found in the various Glass categories.
