Q: These two apothecary jars have been in my family for over 90 years. They came from my grandfather’s hardware store n Flanagan, Illinois. I’m 88 years old and remember seeing them when I was a child. With the lids on they are 26 inches tall. The bases are 7 inches wide and they weigh 9 1/2 lbs. each. There are several chips and cracks around the tops where the lids fit in. They have no identifying marks. Do they have value?
