    for your information, although they make decent cookie jars, these were designed to be used for storing crackers.cookie jars were made from ceramic in order to keep cookies out of direct light so they would last longer where as glass being transparent was good for keeping crackers as they would allow sunlight to come thru and keep crackers fresh and crisp longer..just thought you would like to know..

      Thank you for your input. All comments are welcome. I used Gene Florence’s Collector’s Encyclopedia of Depression Glass as my reference and they refer to these containers as cookie jars. He does not mention crackers in any of his depression glass reference books, although perhaps they were used for such.
